IU Health Tipton Hospital is partnering with Steele’s Tipton Dry Cleaners and Laundry and ABC & Me at Emanuel Lutheran Child Care to present “Caring Hearts”, a coat drive for Tipton and surrounding areas. Residents are encouraged to donate a new or gently used coat of any size to the coat drive. The coats will then be cleaned by Tipton Dry Cleaners & Laundry. On November 7th, coats will be distributed to individuals who would otherwise not have a coat for the winter. A simple process, but to be successful, we are asking local residents for their help!
To get involved, individuals should do the following: Look through closets for coats no longer needed, and in good shape/repair, or purchase a new coat to donate.
Bring the coat(s) to a collection site by October 31.
Collection bins will be located at:
- IU Health Tipton Hospital Main Lobby (Entrance #1) and Medical Office Building North (Entrance #4)
- Steele’s Tipton Dry Cleaners & Laundry
- ABC & Me at Emanuel Lutheran Child Care
Coat distribution will take place at IU Health Tipton Hospital, Community Classroom, Wednesday, November 7 from 4:30 – 6:30 pm.
For more information on the distribution of coats, please contact Crissy Proffitt at 765.675.8107.
