Buy Nothing Day Coat Exchange

We’re BACK in person this year!

We are now actively seeking donations and collection sites for CLEAN, warm winter gear, including coats, hats, gloves, mittens, and scarves for people of all ages and sizes.

Please get in touch if you’d like to set up a collection site of your own or if you have warm winter gear to donate.

We will be updating our website regularly with collection sites as signups come in, so please check back often!

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.

If you can donate a coat, please do so. If you can organize a coat collection, please do so. If you need a coat, please come take one off the racks. Free, no questions asked.
