Many of our resident families have difficulty meeting basic needs like food and clothing year-round. These hardships increase in fall and winter as parents face higher utility bills and children need heavier clothing. For some families, warm coats are a luxury that they cannot afford.
Eleven years ago a resident contacted IHI to report that her neighbor's children were walking to school in the dead of winter without coats. We soon discovered that many children living at our properties were in need of warm coats. IHI secured a donation to buy winter jackets for those children - and Coats for Kids was born! Thanks to donors like you, IHI ensures that no child living in our housing goes without a winter coat.
Will you donate to help all of our resident children stay warm and healthy this winter?
As always, Innovative Housing will bear the overhead costs of our services, which means that 100% of your donation will directly benefit children in need. If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact Brittini Allen, IHI's Director of Fundraising and Communications, at (503) 226-4368, x1 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
