We held our second annual One Warm Coat drive in all of our stores, our Home Office and Distribution Center. One Warm Coat is a national organization dedicated to meeting local needs by supporting coat drives. To kick off the drive, we set a goal for our employees and customers to donate 10,000 coats – which is DOUBLE the amount donated last year. Well guess what? Together, we beat that goal and then some – we collected 14,000 coats!
Jennifer Stockard, President and CEO of One Warm Coat gave each store a certificate of appreciation and said, “FANTASTIC! What great results – 14,000 WOW!! Thinking of the 14,000 people that have been provided with a warm winter due to the efforts of The Container Store family truly warms my heart.”
Thank you so much to our employees and customers who helped make this year’s coat drive a huge success!
