2016: WE'VE GOT YOU COVERED!
Our coat drive is a separate non-profit and we have multiple ways for people to get involved:
- Do your Christmas shopping early for your favorite funeral professional. All profits from the sales of our Charitable Merch goes towards the coat drive. On top of that, Lemasters will match that amount. Buying a hat, t-shirt or Corpses Attempt Hilarity is the equivalent of providing a brand new winter coat. Shop here.
- Visit this page and click Donate. This year, donors have the option of donating a specific number of coats. Better yet, Lemasters will match your donation amount!
- Donate an amount of your choosing. Lemasters will match it! Go here.
- Share! Share details about this coat drive with your network. There's nothing better than word of mouth, and nothing worse than being cold in the middle of winter. If you care, please share!
Please try to make your donation no later than Friday, November 18, 2016.

>>> LAST YEAR'S COAT DRIVE
Cincinnati-Area Families Received $36,600+ in Coats, Hats, Gloves this Winter
Each year, we collect donations in order to purchase brand new winter coats, hats and gloves for children in need in Cincinnati. We partner with St. Vincent De Paul and they distribute the coats each year in early December. The Blue Ash (Ohio) Old Navy store also partners with us—they give us a generous discount to help your dollars go even further.
In 2015, 701 brand new coats and more than 500 brand new hats and gloves were donated. In total, the retail value of last year’s donations was more than $36,600.
Lemasters clients, friends, and partners make donations to the Lemasters Coat Drive Fund and Lemasters matches all of those donations. This year, Lemasters also donated all profits from the sales of its Charitable Merchandise—hats, t-shirts and a card game—as well. You can get yours here, and it will count as a donation for our 2016 Coat Drive.
We are extremely proud of our coat drive and the very real, immediate impact it has on the community. With another bitterly cold winter predicted, your donation can have a very real and potentially life-saving impact.
From 2011–2015, the Lemasters Coat Drive has donated:
- 2,526 new coats
- 541 new pairs of gloves
- 484 new hats
At a total value of more than $126,600
