Help a Sister Out this Holiday through #corks4coats

Help A Sister Out through Corks for Coats! - Wine Sisterhood Blog

Every time you uncork bottles of Wine Sisterhood Wines this holiday season, you could be Helping a Sister Out through our inaugural Corks for Coats campaign. For every cork sent to our Clubhouse in Napa, we will donate $1 toward purchasing coats to help keep people in need warm this winter.

It’s easy to get involved! Here’s how it works:

1. Open a bottle (or bottles) of wine from the Wine Sisterhood family of wines

2. Save your corks.

3. Send your corks to our Wine Sisterhood Clubhouse at 1403 Jefferson St. Napa, CA, 94559.

4. For each cork we receive, we’ll donate $1 to One Warm Coat, a national organization that provides people in need across the U.S. with warm coats in the winter.  

5. Corks need to be received by 12/31/14. The donation, up to a maximum of $10,000, to One Warm Coat will take place by 1/15/15.

Simple as that! Got it?

Now, the only question left to answer is… which bottle do you open first?

Stay tuned for more ideas about how to help keep people in need warm this winter!  

Looking for where to find our wines in your area? Fill out this form here and our Wine Sisters behind the scenes will help you find them. 

More about One Warm Coat:

One Warm Coat is a national non-profit organization that assists in the donation of coats. One Warm Coat helps individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country collect coats and deliver them to local agencies that distribute them free, to people in need.

The organization’s goal is to ensure that anyone who needs a coat has one. Providing this simple yet vital need helps people live productive lives year round.

Nearly 4 million coats have been collected and distributed through One Warm Coat activities since 1992.

    I will collect as many Cork’s as I can..am I reading wrong or is it only sister wines corks? Because the way I see it a Cork is a cork! The same as a cold person is a cold person??????
