That’s impressive, but hard to believe… Everyone that works for them doesn’t accept a dime? And no rent/overhead?

Correct. And not even any shipping costs. Notice the “free shipping” in our Tuesday Night Auction each Tuesday. We don’t pay a penny for shipping.

Not having salaries or shipping costs is huge for us.

I’m on there :slight_smile:

So did InterNachi start this organization?

No. I did. About Cozy Coats for Kids | Free Coats for Kids in Their Favorite Color!. Maggie runs it though and has for years.

And Inspector Outlet donates all the shipping.

I looked at the photo section…its pretty awesome actually. A year ago, I retired from the Rapid City FD after 26 years, I encountered lots and lots of kids in shitty situations. Sometimes something as seemingly small as new new coat, that is brand new, clean and warm can really make a big difference in thier lives. not only keeps em warm, but makes them feel good about themselves and gives em a bit of confidence. Anyway…good job with the coats. one of these times ill win an auction. I forgot about that one ending last night. It went way too cheap. Stay warm.

We work with a lot of Fire Departments and Police Departments as they often know what families are really hurting.

Anyway, when you donate to Cozy Coats for Kids… none of your donation goes to admin. None.
