Episode 63 – One Warm Coat: Keeping the World Warm One Coat at a Time

As we round our way toward the holiday season I wanted to interview a person or group who were doing some good in the world. In 2015 USA Today reported that cold kills 20 times more people than heat does, and an article in 2016 by Climate Depot claims that the US annual averages 144,000 deaths from cold. So let me introduce One Warm Coat. One Warm Coat is a national non-profit organization that works to provide a free, warm coat to any person in need. They support anyone –  individuals, groups, companies, and organizations across the country by providing the tools and resources needed to hold a successful coat drive. Coats are distributed in the communities where they were collected, to children and adults in need, without charge, discrimination or obligation. Today I interview their National Founder and Board Chair Sherri Lewis Wood.
