For more than two decades, the Off Your Back winter coat drive has been a lifeline, ensuring warmth for those who need it most. Over 300,000 high-quality, preloved coats have been gathered from the compassionate hearts of our community and redistributed without a single cent spent. No tedious committee meetings, no sponsor-driven budgets, and no dollars wasted on advertising. The Off Your Back Winter Coat Drive, born from a single viral email, has blossomed into a movement that embraces school collections, company contributions, and the tireless efforts of individual volunteers. We are profoundly grateful for the generosity surrounding us, and, most importantly, for the warmth we can collectively provide to countless Victorians in need.
