The Riot Fest Foundation is joining forces with the Douglass Park Advisory Council once again for the 4th annual Let’s Share The Warmth Coat Drive. Starting November 22nd, we’ll be accepting new and gently used coats for children and adults, as well as gloves, hats, and scarves. The coat drive ends January 4th.
If you’d like to donate a new coat, or have a gently used coat at home that you’re not using, you can make the winter a little better for someone in need. Plus, it feels pretty good to do nice things for people. New or gently used winter items—coats, gloves, hats, scarves, and other winter accessories—are accepted, in both child and adult sizes for all ages.
Coats distributed to the Douglass Park community.
Donations can be dropped off at one of our designated drop off locations below:

About Douglass Park Advisory Council
Established in October 2016, Douglass Park Advisory Council (hereinafter DPAC) is a group of innovative, dedicated, focused, creative and critical thinking volunteers located on the Westside of Chicago at Douglass Park Cultural Center. DPAC mission is to provide opportunities to achieve community goals through community outreach, positive communications, and interaction with community residents, park patrons, and with public and private organizations. DPAC has since committed to enhancing the quality of life for all residents of the North Lawndale area through development and maintenance of parklands and facilities. DPAC promotes community involvement and leadership by providing recreation programs, special events, educational resources, and employment opportunities. DPAC will make sure donated items are distributed to children and adults of all ages.
