The holidays are a time for giving. This year, you can give warmth and care right in your community. Volunteers of America has partnered with Brookfield Properties, one of the largest mall operators in the nation to provide warm winter coats to those in need. You can spread holiday cheer and donate new coats, hats, scarves, and gloves at a local Brookfield Properties collection box near you from November 20-December 11.
If you aren’t able to donate a new coat, you can still support our Warm For The Winter Drive with an online donation which will help families and individuals in need this holiday season.
We are proud to partner 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, we view this partnership as an opportunity to really give back to those in need in the communities in which we operate. We look forward to 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.
