We know that warmth is created in more than one way... A warm coat brings physical warmth, the gift of community brings warmth to our spirits...the knowledge that someone cares brings warmth to the heart.
Please show your warmth for those less fortunate in our community by donating new or gently used coats at any Julian's Dry Cleaners now through November 18th, for our 2nd Annual Share the Warmth Coat Drive.

Julian's Dry Cleaners will dry clean the coats free of charge to prepare them for distribution. Working with Action for a Better Community, the coats and jackets will then be available to children and adults in need at our Coat Giveaway event on November 21st at Lake Avenue Baptist Church, 27 Ambrose St., Rochester, NY 14608, from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. Fidelis Care representatives will also be on site to assist with applications for enrollment in a health insurance product, renew health insurance coverage, and to learn more about the NY State of Health.
If you are in need of a coat, please call Action for a Better Community at 585-325-5116 ext. 3400, Monday- Friday 9am-4pm. Coat recipients are expected to meet 2015 federal poverty guideline requirements. Recipients can simply obtain a reference letter from Action for a Better Community, or any other human service agency, which states that you meet the income guideline and the amount of people in your household.
Community volunteers are also welcome to assist in this event. To help, please call Action for a Better Community at 585-325-5116, ext. 3400, Monday- Friday 9am-4pm.
