Looking for ways to make sure everyone stays warm in the cold this winter? Donate winter clothing items to our “Shed Your Coat” drive, and get the warm fuzzy feeling of helping those who are most vulnerable in our Denver community. And to sweeten the deal, we’ll also throw in a free art print!
From Wednesday December 1 to Friday December 31, YellowDog will be collecting warm clothing items to benefit The Gathering Place. You can drop off clothing items at YellowDog on Mon-Fri during our regular business hours (9am-5pm).
The dropoff location is at YellowDog, address 3881 Steele Street Unit A, Denver, CO 80205 in the York Street Yards warehouse complex in Northeast Denver.
Pick up an artful print in exchange for your donation!
For every clothing item donated, you can choose one of two fun print items. Each is designed locally by the YellowDog team or our artist friends and printed with 💛 locally here at YellowDog.
Hug Your Dog art print, 10”x10”
As seen as a giant mural on our entrance wall, this print is the work of an amazing local artist, Robin Faye Gates. The 10”x10” print makes a cheery piece of home-office decor or a sweet gift for any dog lovers in your life.
Mile High City art deco poster, 11”x17”
A perfect poster for all true Denverites, native or transplant. This Mile High City skyline poster won an award in 2020. It was designed in-house by Morgan and showcases the shiny metallic capabilities of our Xerox Iridesse specialty ink printer.

About The Gathering Place
Founded in 1986, The Gathering Place is the only daytime drop-in center in metropolitan Denver that serves women, transgender individuals, and their children who are experiencing poverty, many of whom are also experiencing homelessness.
Thanks for helping us launch this holiday tradition of serving the community — especially those who are vulnerable to hardship, housing insecurity, and homelessness during the coldest months of the year.
