Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate and Ewing & Clark Donate to One Warm Coat this Holiday Season

1639761073SEATTLE, WA - This holiday season, Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate (LRE®) and sister company (and LRE® Board of Regents member) Ewing & Clark Inc. have partnered with One Warm Coat, which provides vital warmth to those who are suffering through the cold without the protection of a coat. LRE® and Ewing & Clark employees donated funds, as well as warm coats, to this very deserving cause.

Additionally, because donations by LRE® and Ewing & Clark employees were matched by each company, One Warm Coat received double the funds to spend on keeping the community warm. According to the organization, “every $1 donated warms 1 person.”

The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and economic fallout continue to negatively affect our most vulnerable neighbors. In the last year, more than 60 million Americans reported difficulty paying for household expenses. Shelter from the elements, like food and clean water, is a basic need and a warm coat makes an immediate impact in the life of a person who is struggling. 

Because of the generous donations from LRE ® and Ewing & Clark, One Warm Coat can provide warmth to those in need. A mother recently received coats for her children from one of their nonprofit partners. She was moved to tears because her kids will now be able to play on the playground at school; without the necessary winter gear, schools are required to keep the children inside for their safety and health.

Last year, more than 260,000 coats were distributed across North America to children and adults in need through One Warm Coat’s Coat Drive Program. “We’re grateful for volunteer Coat Drive Ambassadors like LRE® and Ewing & Clark!  It’s because of our incredible volunteers that so many people receive the gift of warmth each year. Shelter from the elements, like clean water, food, and housing, is a basic need. Thanks to LRE®'s and Ewing & Clark’s efforts, many people in this community will be warm this winter”, said Beth W. Amodio, President and CEO of One Warm Coat.
