Lake View YMCA One Warm Coat Drive

When the weather outside is frightful, the most delightful thing we can do is ensure our neighbors have what they need to stay warm! 

From January 10 through 31, the Lake View YMCA is partnering with nonprofit organization One Warm Coat to host a coat drive. One Warm Coat believes that shelter from the elements is a basic human need, and together, we’re making sure that youth and adults in our community are protected from the frosty Chicago winter.

Donate your new and gently used coats, and the Lake View YMCA staff will distribute them directly to members of the Lakeview and surrounding community. Right now, we’re especially in need of men’s outerwear in sizes L, XL, and XXL. 

Find our coat drive bin in the Lake View YMCA lobby on the first floor.
