Clean out the winter closet and donate last year's coats to the local shelter thrift store.
A few minutes to sort, a few minutes to deliver on our chores round.
Coats are expensive, and while our girls have managed to wear theirs for several years (I bought them large, plus they had expansion sleeves), we've kept them in great shape. They'll be ideal for other little girls.
There are shelters and schools and any number of organizations throughout the country that can help you find a home for your old (but still usable) coats. Check One Warm Coat for some leads (it doesn't have anything for my area, but maybe for yours), or any of these stories for more information.
Yes (though I confess it's sometimes really tough for me to give up the things the little girls used through such great memory-making times - silly me)
