Each year, Wrap Up London, Hands On London’s annual coat collection campaign, brings together hundreds of Londoners each November who are willing to donate at least two hours of their time. These volunteers will help with the coats as they are donated, sort them and distribute them to the homeless, elderly and refugee charities across the city.
In November of 2016, over 850 people gave their time to collect nearly 23,000 coats and distribute them to over 100 charities. Wrap Up London has been impacting the London city for the past 7 years. Of Wrap Up London’s 7 years, William Blair’s London office has supported Hands On London each of those years during their annual Wrap Up London coat drive. The William Blair team helped to collect 167 bags of coats.
