Please join us in helping children receive the coats they so desperately need this winter. I will also be offering some incentives for donations!

Donate Coats and other Winter Clothing

You can donate new or gently used coats at participating Jiffy Lube or First Citizens Bank locations. You can also donate other winter clothing items including gently used gloves and hats and new underwear, T-shirts and socks. They are especially low on infant coats and those for older teens in adult sizes. A detailed list of drop-off locations can be found in the box above.

Coats for Children Telethon

You can make a credit card donation via phone on December 10 by calling 877-543-2628 anytime between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m.  You can also donate on WRAL.com or via text right now. For more details on donating, click on the link in the box above and scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Incentives

Donors may be eligible for thank-you prizes throughout the day, depending on the time of their call and their pledge amount.For a long list of prizes, click on the link in the box above.

Everyone who makes a phone donation will receive a Jiffy Lube booklet with coupons worth $135!

I'll be on the phones taking donations from 12:30 - 1:30 so please give us a call if you have a little extra in your budget this holiday.

I will be giving away 5 sets of my book, "The Smart Spending Guide" and DVD, "Cut Your Grocery Bills in Half" for an $85 donation.

For a $200 donation, I will be offering a rare one-on-one session at the grocery store including a book and DVD!  If a business makes the $200 donation, I will come on-site to your Raleigh area business and teach a 1 hour Lunch and Learn workshop for your employees (at no additional cost) and donate a book and DVD to your business!

Thanks so much for your consideration and I hope to hear from you on Friday. I mean it when I say, "Call me!"
