Our Winter Coat Drive is back!

Friday 17 June 2022

A Yarra Libraries staff member wearing a black 'Libraries Change Lives' t-shirt sits on a pile of numerous winter coats with their arms outstretched.
Got a spare winter coat sitting in your wardrobe unused? To help support people experiencing homelessness within Yarra, we’re collecting coats for Off Your Back at all our Yarra Libraries branches this winter.

Off Your Back is a not for profit organisation that’s collected and donated around 150,000 good quality, pre-loved coats to those in need of warmth over the past 20 years.
Thanks to our amazing community we were able to collect over 200 coats last winter, and this year we’re hoping to double this target!

Want to help? Bring any winter coat that’s washed and in good condition to a Yarra Libraries branch between 1 June and 31 August and we’ll pass it on.
