Warm Coats & Warm Hearts Coat Drive
This collaboration is part of an ongoing effort to ensure no individual goes without a warm coat during the cold winter months. Each year the Warm Coats & Warm Hearts Coat Drive relies on the generosity and compassion of our customers across the country. In partnership with ABC's Good Morning America and the national non-profit organization K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, Burlington collects gently-worn coats in all its store locations and works with local agencies to distribute the coats to those most in need within the community. Having completed its 9th year, the coat drive has collected well over 1.5MM coats! Thanks to all those that continue to donate and help spread the gift of warmth!

Burlington is proud to support women’s heart health. Now in its 5th year of partnership with WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, Burlington’s Women’s Heart Health campaign helps to increase awareness among its customers about the importance of their heart health as heart disease is the leading cause of death in women. Each February and March, Burlington hosts a national Point-of-Sale campaign in all its store locations nationwide and as a result, has raised more than $4 million to further education and support for women living with heart disease. Additionally, the campaign has provided funds towards the establishment of WomenHeart’s Hispanic initiative, Para La Mujer Hispana, dedicated to educating women of Hispanic descent about the risks of heart disease. Throughout the month of February 2016, the campaign hosted Talk Show Host and Heart Health Advocate, Wendy Williams, as spokesperson for the #HealthyHeartSelfie initiative where people were encouraged to post photos of what heart health means to them and heart healthy tips were provided throughout the month of February through #HealthyHeartSelfie.
