OUTSIDE SAVANNAH ANNOUNCES ANNUAL “RECYCLE YOUR JACKET” INITIATIVE TO SUPPORT OLD SAVANNAH CITY MISSION – JAN. 15 – FEB. 4

SAVANNAH, GA – Jan. 10, 2024 – Outside Savannah, part of Outside Brands, has called on the community to support their annual “Recycle Your Jacket” initiative by donating their lightly used jackets, coats, sweaters, and blankets to Old Savannah City Mission. These items can be dropped off at the Outside Savannah retail location, 300 W River Street Unit 6B, from January 15 through February 4.   

Moving into the third year for this program in Savannah and 37th year in Hilton Head, Recycle Your Jacket is a coat drive that is facilitated through the Outside retail locations. Those who donate towards the program are eligible for up to a 50% discount on a new jacket or coat from the Outside Savannah store. Cold weather clothing is a common item that shelters are constantly in need of, so donations like these are crucial at this chilly time of year.  

“During the winter season, we believe that everyone should be equipped to face the cold and we know that not everyone has those resources. We want to help bridge that gap in our community,” said Mike Overton, Founder and CEO of Outside Brands. “Although we give a discount in our store for donating to Recycle Your Jacket, the main goal of this initiative is to get members of our community to give back to those in need here in Savannah.”  

The Old Savannah City Mission is a local 501(c)(3) funded by people who care about the less fortunate and demonstrate it by giving of their time, talent and treasure. The Mission works with hundreds of volunteers to deliver services to Savannah’s most vulnerable and needy citizens in a highly cost-effective way.
