The “Give the Coat off Your Back Drive” is officially kicked off for the 2010 annual drive. The Farrar Law Firm and Farrar Family and all of our sponsors and friends encourage those that can, give, please give. This is the Farrar’s nineteenth (19th) year of conducting the coat and blanket drive. The demand for cold weather items has increased as we all go through this recession together. Distributions will be made directly to homeless individuals as in the years past, and we once again ask you to join the efforts of the Farrar’s this year to help those less fortunate be warm and safe this winter. Give the gift of hope and warmth! Donate any slightly used or new coats and blankets and love the joy of giving.
The Farrar Law Firm is partnering this year with Fast Signs, Southern Style Carpet, Uncle Bob’s Self Storage, Emerald Coast Hospice and Bay Breeze Nursing Home as drop off locations. Anyone who wishes to donate a coat, blanket, gloves or hats may drop off those items at any of their locations listed below:

Give The Coat off Your Back Organization
The Coat Drive was established in 1992 and for the past (19) nineteen years the Farrar Family through the Farrar Law Firm and their wonderful partners and sponsors have collected thousands of coats and blankets during their annual drive to provide coats, blankets and other warm weather articles of clothing to the homeless and less fortunate of our community. Thousands of homeless and at-risk homeless people have been given coats and blankets and perhaps were a little warmer and safer as a result of the generosity of our community. Gregory Farrar stated “We deal with the immediate needs of the homeless during the winter months which allow the agencies to work to solve the underlying causes of homelessness”.
The community shows tremendous support and has joined the efforts of the Farrar’s every year; it has become a holiday condition.
