Buffalo Exchange recently launched the 2014 Coats for Cubs drive at their Ballard (2232 NW Market St, Suite 110) and U District (4530 University Way NE) stores to give the furs back to the animals. The store will be accepting fur apparel donations (including trims, accessories and coats) until Tuesday, April 22.
The furs donated in store will be given to rehabilitation organizations across the country for use as bedding and comfort to orphaned and injured wildlife.
The Coats for Cubs program has been running since 2006 and since its inception Buffalo Exchange has collected and donated a total of 8,524 used furs.
Locals can drop off their donations at any time during store hours from Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
