Hi <<First Name>>,

It’s that time of year again … the cooler, crisp air is upon us and soon it will be downright chilly! Time to start thinking about winter coats.

Here at Olivia’s, winter coats are definitely on our minds. It’s at this time every year that the Olivia’s Organics Children’s Foundation assists the Kids Clothes Club (KCC) with its amazing undertaking of donating thousands of brand new winter coats to children in need.

We have been joining forces with the KCC since 2006 and once again, our warehouse is chock-full of warm winter coats and generous hands and hearts. Last year, we worked with more than 60 community agencies and distributed over 3,000 coats throughout Massachusetts. We're on track to distribute even more coats this year, and we want to share some inspiring, fresh tips on ways to give back with you, our extended Olivia's family! 

Don't Forget About the Essentials!
We all know jackets and food are critical to those in need, but we don't always think about the many other items that make a world of difference. Check out our donation download below to find out how you can maximize the impact of giving back!
1. Donate Socks and Underwear: Start off on the right giving foot by donating socks and underwear. These are generally the least donated items, yet they are the essentials so many people need. Next time you go shopping, consider grabbing an extra pack or two and delivering them to your local shelter or donation center on your way home.   
2. Spice Up Your Food Donations: When we think of donating to food pantries, we think about canned and nonperishable food. But what about making that food flavorful and enjoyable? Salt, pepper, cinnamon and paprika are some of the most-used spices in soup kitchens, so pick up a few extras on your next trip to the grocery store and add them to your donation of canned goods.  
3. Stay on a Giving Roll with Toilet Paper: Always in demand and easily stored, toilet paper is an oft-forgotten but much appreciated item for any charitable organization. Next time you spot a sale at the drugstore, buy a second pack and add it to your bag of clothes headed for the donation bin.  
What items do you often donate that you think make the biggest impact? Send your ideas to Thank you as always for making Olivia’s part of your healthy, fresh life and joining us in giving back!

Catch ya next week,
Team Olivia’s
