Give Warmth Coat Drive 2012



As Seattle weather drops from mid 40’s to mid 30’s most of us are bundling up in our sweaters, scarves and coats. Did you know that there are people right around Redmond who don’t have a hat, gloves, or a scarf?  Worse, not even a coat!?  This is hard to comprehend, but imagine how cold it must be for the little kid that doesn’t have a coat to wear while waiting for the bus. According to Friends of Youth, the organization that our coat drive benefits, as many as 2,000 young people in King County, ages 12-24, are without a safe place to sleep each night. Think of those homeless youth, with no heat or blankets or comforter to keep warm. Friends of Youth out of Redmond, Washington over 60 years ago began to imagined these same scenarios and committed themselves to doing something about it.

With much joy, the clients and staff at C. Joy Salon have been doing something about it too! We are so excited to be launching our Third Annual Give Warmth Coat Drive. At this time of the year it has become a tradition for us all to take the time to go through our closets and give warm clothing materials to those who are less fortunate.  Would you join us in this giving tradition? We ask that you only donate gently used coats and jackets, meaning no tares or stains please. Sweaters, hats, scarf’s, etc are also welcomed. We want to take this opportunity to thank you — in advance, for taking the time to be generous by helping others. You are truly appreciated!!

The coat drive officially launched on October 3rd and ends December 3rd 2012. The salon is open seven days and week, however if we have stepped out of the salon please leave your coats outside our door! It would help us if you could put your donations in a plastic bag. We also have tax deduction papers for you to fill out to make sure you are able to get a tax deduction on your next filing.

For those of you that haven’t been to our salon, it can be a bit tricky to find. We are located in a White Victorian style house on the left side of 7/11 mini mart off of 164th Ave NE. The entrance is on the left side of the house with salon parking in the back.

Please tell your friends and family about our coat drive!!

Here is to generosity, love and being warm!

Coat Drive



We want to get a head start on our Second Annual 2011 Coat Drive.  Let’s all take a moment to clean out our children’s, significant other’s and our own coat closets!  While cleaning ask yourself; “did I wear this last year?”  If the answer is NO then be generous and let someone in need wear it!  We ask to only bring clean lightly worn coats and jackets.  This means no stains or tares please.  We would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to be generous and help another in need by donating to our coat drive.

We are at the salon seven days a week, but might be out to lunch when you drop off your donation.  We will be leaving a large plastic bin outside our door for you to drop off your coats just in case we are out!  Please bundle your donations up in a plastic bag.  We have tax deduction papers you can take to make sure you are able to get a tax deduction on your next tax filing.

For those of you who haven’t been to our salon before, here is some help finding us as it can be tricky. We are located in a white Victorian style house next to 7/11 mini mart off of 164th Ave NE. The driveway is on the left side of the house with salon entrance and parking in the back.  There is a for lease sign up stairs which is for a separate business.

The coat drive starts October 18th and ends December 3rd.

Please tell all your friends and family about our coat drive!

Here is to love, warmth, generosity and a clean closet!
