DEARBORN, Mich. – Carhartt work wear company is partnering with charities and hosting a nationwide clothing drive to collect donations for victims of Hurricane Harvey.

The Michigan-based company has teamed up with One Warm Coat, an organization that provides clothing to the needy for free. Customer donations, as well as Carhartt products will be delivered to victims, the company said.

"I speak for everyone at Carhartt when I say our sincere thoughts are with the hardworking people of Texas and Louisiana as they continue to battle severe weather and historic flooding," said Mark Valade, chairman and CEO of Carhartt. "It's critical that those affected by this storm have dry clothes on their backs and access to basic essentials while communities and organizations work to get men, women and children back on their feet as quickly as possible. It's difficult to comprehend the scope of this disaster, which is why Carhartt is offering support in the ongoing response, relief and recovery efforts."

The company is also donating Carhartt items to Convoy of Hope, a disaster relief organization, and SkillsUSA, a technical student organization.

A monetary donation will also be made to Team Rubicon, a disaster response organization that will deploy military veterans and first responders to assist Houston and communities affected by Harvey.
