HFM Coat Drive South Jersey



2016 Coat Drive totals are in!

HFM would like to thank the community for their donations to their 7th annual coat drive. This year we collected just over 3,000 coats which takes our seven-year grand total to 12,200. The 2016 coat drive, which began in October, was hoping to reach the 10,000 coat mark but far surpassed it. Throughout the winter the coats were distributed to those in need throughout Gloucester County.

The drive had over 30 coat drop-off locations throughout the area. Several volunteers participated in the drive including students enrolled in the Standard 9 program at the Y.A.L.E School. The students volunteered once a week throughout the drive sorting and organizing the thousands of coats received.


Our Annual Mission

Our Coat Drive mission is to provide every man, woman and child in need in Gloucester County with a coat for the winter. Over 20 Gloucester County organizations received the coats such as the AmVets, Kitchen of Hope, Glassboro Success Center, Angels Clothing Closet, Unforgotten Haven, and many more. Visit to see a complete list of recipient organizations.

Paul Blackstock and his team from the nonprofit, Heart of South Jersey, worked quickly to distribute the coats throughout Gloucester County. When asked who receives the coats, Paul Blackstock said, “Families throughout the county and also homeless veterans. We work with VFWs, American Legions and several other organizations to get them out to those who need them.”

Our President, Michael P. Pallozzi, noted, “We are so happy we surpassed our goal this year, which means thousands of people got the help they needed. Gloucester County is a wonderful, strong community and we are thrilled to give back to our neighbors in need.”
