As extreme winter weather kicks in throughout the D.C. region, several charities and businesses are hosting campaigns to keep District residents bundled up. Two people experiencing homelessness died of hypothermia last winter in D.C., out of a total of six hypothermia-related deaths, according to the Interagency Council on Homelessness. Just a few weeks ago, a homeless man in a wheelchair died of hypothermia in Columbia Heights. Here are several places that are currently helping those in need by accepting and distributing winter coats, accessories, and more.

CENTRAL UNION MISSION (65 Massachusetts Avenue NW) is receiving donations of men’s, women’s, and children’s winter coats of all sizes from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. daily. You can leave donations with front desk attendants who can also help with unloading items, if needed. Staff members also provide donors with a form for tax purposes, as well as thank-you bags. The mission encourages people to share pictures and comments about their experiences on its Facebook page.

THRIVE DC (1525 Newton St NW) is accepting gently used winter coats, hoodies, gloves, hats, scarves, blankets, and sleeping bags, as well as new underwear, thermals, and socks. Items can be dropped off at the organization’s headquarters between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Thrive will distribute items to clients on December 2, January 13, and February 3. People can also donate by purchasing items from the organization’s Amazon Wish List.

CATHOLIC CHARITIES (2811 O Street, SE) is accepting new and gently used, cleaned coats—larger sizes are especially needed. The organization is also taking new packages of socks. People can bring donations directly to the coat closet at St. Francis Xavier Church on December 10 and January 14, as well as two other locations during designated times.

MIRIAM’S KITCHEN has an option to purchase winter items such as socks and sleeping bags, in addition to everyday necessities from its Amazon Wish List.

MARTHA’S TABLE (2114 14thStreet NW) is collecting winter clothing and cold-weather gear including hats, scarves, thermals, sleeping bags, and more to be distributed on its mobile food truck and at its two Martha’s Outfitters thrift store locations. People can also purchase new items through the organization’s Amazon Wish List.

CORNERSTONES (1801 Cameron Glen Drive, Reston) is accepting donations of new and gently used coats and jackets, as well as new hats, gloves, mittens, and scarves. People can drop off the items anytime at the North County Governmental Building's 24-hour drop box.

BURLINGTON COAT FACTORY is accepting gently worn coats. And in return, donors will receive 10 percent off entire purchases through January 23. The retailer has several locations in Maryland and Northern Virginia.

And while they don't have any winter-specific campaigns, other places including Covenant House, , Pathways to Housing, and Friendship Place accept clothing and other items all year round.
