At West49/Amnesia, we’re always incredibly excited to work with local Canadian charities. Since 2002, West49 has proudly collected over 85,000 coats through the Feels Good To Give Coat Drive (previously known as Coats For Kids). These donations have helped us to provide warm jackets for many who may otherwise be without. This year, we once again partnered up with Burton, the Chill Foundation and many other local charities, expanding our reach and helping even more young people get access to warm winter coats.
In addition to our annual coat drive, West 49 has once again teamed up with the Make-A-Wish Foundation by offering holiday gift boxes for purchase at our locations across Canada. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of each box go directly to the foundation, to help brighten the lives of many and make holiday wishes come true. We are extremely proud to support these initiatives; as it gives each store the opportunity to connect with and give back to the communities in which we operate across the Country.
