Coat Drive for Resettled Refugees

When you purchase and donate new winter coats, you’ll provide resettled refugees a necessity they do not have when they arrive and one that is too expensive to purchase. Here’s how you can help!

What should I donate?

New, warm, waterproof or water-resistant, winter coats. We need children’s, women’s and men’s. Small and medium are the most needed sizes, but we can also use a few large. Any color or pattern, but please, no camouflage.

Will you accept used items?

Unfortunately, no. For health and safety reasons and to respect the dignity of our clients, we can only accept new coats.

What are the donation drop-off details?

Please schedule a drop-off at either the JFS Capitol Hill Campus or the JFS Kent Campus by emailing

Who do I contact if I have questions?

Please contact Leslie Sugiura
