Sunshine Division Coat Drive

So go through your closets and find those coats you no longer wear and bring them to the rooftop — you’ll create more space in your closet and feel good about helping people in need. We are holding drawings for “Coat Prizes” to anyone that brings a coat for the Sunshine Division. Grand Coat Prize is two nice jackets from Columbia Sportswear (a men’s and a women’s) and a pass to the employee store. Four other drawings for passes to the employee store will take place for folks that donate a coat.
