Press Release

Caring Hearts Coat Drive

October 30, 2017

The IU Health Tipton Hospital is partnering with Steele’s Tipton Dry Cleaners and Laundry and ABC & Me at Emanuel Lutheran Child Care to present “Caring Hearts”, a coat drive for Tipton and surrounding areas. Residents are encouraged to donate a new or gently used coat of any size to the coat drive.  The coats will then be cleaned by Tipton Dry Cleaners & Laundry. On November 8th, coats will be distributed to individuals who would otherwise not have a coat for the winter. A simple process, but to be successful, we are asking local residents for their help!

To get involved, individuals should do the following: Look through closets for coats no longer needed, and in good shape/repair, or purchase a new coat to donate.
Bring the coat(s) to a collection site by November 1.

Collection bins will be located at:
• IU Health Tipton Hospital Main Lobby, Medical Office Building South, Medical Office Building North
• Steele’s Tipton Dry Cleaners & Laundry
• ABC & Me at Emanuel Lutheran Child Care

Coat distribution will take place at IU Health Tipton Hospital, Community Classroom, Wednesday, November 8 from 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm.

For more information on the distribution of coats, please contact Crissy Proffitt at 765.675.8107.
