Give the Gift of Warmth: 2022 Coat & Blanket Drive

If you’re looking to give back this holiday season, consider giving the gift of warmth. At Hicks Dental Group in Prescott, we aim to support the Arizona community through more than just affordable dental care. 

This year, we’re hosting a coat and blanket drive until December 1st, 2022 to help those in need. Read on for more information about where and how to donate your gently used coats and other winter necessities. 

Everything to Know About Our 2022 Coat and Blanket Drive

What can you donate?

Everyone deserves to stay warm this winter. That’s why we’re collecting the following gently used items for both children and adults experiencing homelessness. You can donate:

  • Coats
  • Scarves
  • Hats
  • Gloves
  • Blankets

Why should you donate?

Not everyone can afford basic necessities like coats and gloves. In fact, over 37 million Americans currently live in poverty. Last winter, over 5,000 people in Maricopa county alone experienced homelessness in a single night. 

Living in an unsheltered situation when the temperatures drop increases the risk of heart attacks, pneumonia, and hypothermia. Men, women, children, and seniors are all in need of protection from the cold. To put it simply, donating coats, blankets, and other winter necessities helps save lives

When and where can you drop the items off?

We will be collecting your gently used winter coats and blankets from now until December 1st, 2022. You can drop them off at our office, which is located at:

108 Whipple St.
Prescott, AZ 86301

We’re open from:

  • 7:30 am – 4:30 pm Monday & Tuesday
  • 7:30 am – 5:00 pm Wednesday
  • 7:30 am – 4:30 pm Thursday
  • 8:00 am – 3:30 pm Friday

Who are we collecting for?

The winter items you leave with Hicks Dental Group will go to the Prescott Area Shelter Services and The Society of St. Vincent de Paul. 

Prescott Area Shelter Services (PASS) is a local nonprofit women’s shelter. They provide temporary emergency housing for veterans and women, including women with children. Women who stay with PASS receive individualized case management services and valuable resources to help them transition into permanent housing. 

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a nonprofit that feeds, clothes, houses, and heals Arizonans in need. They serve the local community with dining rooms for people experiencing homelessness, food banks that deliver to individuals and families in need, homelessness prevention programs, and much more. They also have thrift stores where you can donate or shop for furniture and clothing. The funds from these stores help support their community programs.
