Beth Amodio, President & CEO, One Warm Coat

Approximately 200,000 people die each year from the cold. The mission of One Warm Coat is simple: to provide free coats to people in need.

During the 2019/2020 coat drive season, more than 4,000 children, adults, companies, and groups helped organize and hold coat drives in their communities. Because of the commitment and creativity of One Warm Coat’s Ambassadors, more than half a million people were warmed last winter.

The unprecedented crisis created by the Covid-19 Pandemic is impacting the lives of millions of people. Families who were already struggling are now at severe risk, and many will be unable to pay their utility bills. The need for coats this fall and winter will be greater than ever before.

Beth Amodio joined One Warm Coat as President and CEO in October 2018. She has more than twenty years of leadership experience in nonprofit organizations and educational institutions, including four years as Senior Director of Development and Communications for Second Harvest Food Bank in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties in California. Beth has a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and a Master’s Degree in Institutional Advancement from Vanderbilt University. She currently resides in Columbia, South Carolina with her husband and two sons.
