The holidays are a time for giving. Although our coat drive with Brookfield Properties has ended, the need for warm winter coats is great than ever. You can provide warmth and care right in your community.
If you aren’t able to donate a new coat, you can still spread holiday cheer by contacting a local Volunteers of America office near you and donating a new coat, hat, scarf and gloves to a family in need. You can also make an online donation which will help families and individuals in need this holiday season.
Thank you for your compassion and care for the 1.5 million people we serve every year.
We are so grateful for everyone’s generosity this holiday season. Our goal is to collect as many donations in as many communities as possible and we are thrilled to maximize those efforts through Brookfield Properties’ shopping centers across the country. We look forward to the opportunity to support American families who are struggling this holiday season.Mike King, CEO and President, Volunteers of America
We are proud to have partnered with Volunteers of America on the Warm for the Winter Coat Drive at our shopping centers across the country. While it is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, this partnership is an opportunity to really give back to those in need in the communities in which we operate. We are glad to be part of a successful coat drive and are grateful for their support in this effort.Brookfield Properties
Holiday Art Installation
An assortment of the collected coats will be featured as artwork. Brookfield Properties has commissioned renowned artist Noah Scanlin to develop an art installation that will be on display at Tysons Galleria mall in Virginia. The artwork will have a seasonal theme and highlight the diversity of the holidays including Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanzaa.
Noah Scalin’s work is about reorganizing the noise of American culture into recognizable signals – illuminating the people, moments, and objects that should be prioritized over the distracting spectacle of our society.
By using everyday items, including mass produced consumer goods, in his collages, photographs, installations, and sculptures, Scalin asks the viewer to recontextualize the ‘things’ in their lives that are normally taken for granted, overlooked, or discarded.
