FWDG helps Beaufort County stay warm again this year with its annual coat drive. The coat drive, established in 1990 by one of FWDG’s owners, Robyn Mark, has been going strong for 32 years with over 47,000 winter coats collected. The furniture store will begin its 33rd Annual Coat Drive on Wednesday, November 1st and continue through Sunday, December 31st. New and gently worn winter coats for children and adults will be collected in our store and at drop offs throughout Beaufort and Jasper counties.
This year, FWDG partners with Jasper County Neighbors United, Help of Beaufort, The Deep Well Project and Bluffton Self Help. These nonprofit organizations will distribute the donated clothing to those in need throughout Beaufort County. FWDG organizes all aspects of the coat drive including promotion, collection, temporary storage, and transportation of the clothing.
Our team is grateful for the assistance of many individuals and organizations year after year in order to make this project a success.
