Now collecting for Spare a Pair!
Socks and underwear are among the most requested items by folks living unhoused and in shelters. For the third year in a row, we are collecting BRAND NEW, UNOPENED socks (the warmer and thicker the better!) and underwear for adults of all genders and sizes (S-5x).
This year, we’re also supporting our friends at Red.Lined Period to collect menstrual products! They’re a local grassroots organization dedicated to fighting period insecurity by providing free menstrual products to youth and people across Rhode Island.
The BND Coat Exchange began over 20 years ago when founder Greg Gerritt decided to channel his love of the environment into a charitable cause. Annually occurring on Black Friday, Buy Nothing Day invites you to give rather than spend, and to repurpose rather than toss. Each Friday after Thanksgiving, those in need of warmth meet at donation sites around the state to receive gently-used winter gear. Whether taking a coat or donating one, you’ll always be met with a smile.
