Big Canoe POA and One Warm Coat®, warming communities…one coat at a time.

Big Canoe is truly a generous community. In midst of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, Big Canoe Property Owners reached deep into their closets to donate warm coats to those in need in the Pickens County area.

The Canoe Cubs and the Big Canoe POA worked with One Warm Coat® to collect clean gently used warm coats for two weeks with locations at the Big Canoe Fitness Center, the Canoe Lodge and the Big Canoe Chapel. As always, Big Canoe Property Owners showed their giving spirit by contributing 339 coats for our local community. To complete the coat drive, volunteers gathered to sort, count and organize the donations while stuffing the coats with small “pocket notes” sweetly written by youth volunteers to brighten the spirits of the recipients. All donated coats were given to CARES of Pickens County for distribution to local children and adults in need. Over the last 25 years, One Warm Coat has worked with its volunteers to give away more than 5 million coats. Learn more at www.onewarmcoat.org.
