We collect winter jackets that need to be fixed, and need volunteers that can mend them at home on their own time before donating to local organizations.

*We have a small fund to provide replacement zippers if you can’t supply them.

Skills Required Experienced sewists who can repair or replace zippers are needed as most jackets have a broken zipper. We are also looking for people that can repair holes or buttons etc. Not all jackets that need repairs have a broken zipper.
