It’s Time for the 7th Annual One Warm Coat Drive

One Warm Coat

It’s starting to feel a lot like winter out in the Black Hills in perfect time to start our One Warm Coat Drive! Everyone is welcome to come to our Rapid Chevrolet Showroom, Service Department or Body Shop to donate your gently used winter items in exchange for a $19.95 oil change coupon and a chance to win $1,000! We ask that your winter items are clean, gently used, and of all sizes. In the past we have collected a range of winter items including boots, hats, gloves, snow pants, coats, scarfs, etc.

This is our 7th year accepting coats for our One Warm Coat Drive as a way for us to give back to our community by helping people who are less fortunate acquire a coat to have for the winter months ahead. In previous years we have been able to collect and donate thousands of coats to Youth & Family Services, who distribute them throughout Rapid City to those in need.

At Rapid Chevrolet Cadillac we believe in the mission of Youth & Family Services which is why we choose to continually donate to them each year. As their mission is “to support children and their families in being capable, caring and contributing members of the community”. Sometimes we forget about the simple necessities we use every day, especially in these winter months; coats, hats and gloves are a must in the Black Hills.
We use One Warm Coat as our foundation because of their vision – “that One Warm Coat will become a part of the American lifestyle; that when a coat is no longer needed, people will think of us and donate it; that donors will be warmed by the knowledge that their coats will go directly to children, women and men in need.” At Rapid Chevrolet Cadillac we hope our community will remember that we put on this drive each year, therefore they will set aside their winter items each year for our drive knowing they will go to someone in need.

In conclusion, warm your heart this winter by warming someone in need and receive an oil change coupon and a chance to win $1,000. On December 16th we will draw for the $1,000 at noon, but we will continue to accept winter items through December. Thank you in advance for helping our community.
