Winter Wear Drive

Proud Haven is always working on new projects, events, and activities. See what we're working on and discover how you can help us!

We are collecting donations of gift cards to provide winter clothing to those in need.

GIFT CARD DONATIONS ARE STILL NEEDED!

We have reached our initial goal of $1000 and are now distributing gift cards, but we could always use more donations.

Thank you to all our generous donors!

Persad Center

Pittsburgh PA 15201 
Hours: Mon - Thurs, 1 PM to 9 PM

• Bus Routes: The 87, 91, and 93 buses have a stop within a block of Persad.
• A maximum of $75 will be given out to each person.
• Supply is limited and will be given on a first come basis.
• Additional coupons may be availabe to help your gift cards go further (supplies limited)

​LGBTQ+ youth who are unstably housed or homeless may find themselves exposed to dangerously cold conditions without the necessary apparel. Help us provide them with warm winter gear in one easy step!

Our goal is to raise an additional $1000 in gift card donations through February 2017. 

Go to Burlington Coat Factory’s website, purchase a $25 gift card(s), and have it shipped (for free) to the address below:

Doing a winter wear drive this way has many benefits:
• Youth get to pick out their own apparel, giving them a sense of dignity.
• Youth are guaranteed to get apparel that fits them.
• Youth can get what they need the most- a coat, boots, gloves, socks…
• The Burlington store in Downtown is easy for youth to get to.
• Finding enough space to store donated winter gear isn’t an issue.
• You don’t even have to leave your house in order to participate!

We hope you’ll join us in supporting these youth and making sure they know they’re cared about. Thank you in advance for your participation and generosity!
