3rd Annual Coat Drive
Together with International Neighbors, we are giving new members of our community a warm welcome.
In Charlottesville, we are fortunate to have several organizations that are deeply invested in providing support for international refugees who are making Charlottesville their new home. As the weather gets chilly and you clean out your closets, please consider donating any gently used winter jackets to our coat drive for International Neighbors. Your coats will go directly into the hands of a local refugee right when they need them.
Peace Frogs Travel/Outfitters will donate $3/coat to International Neighbors.
Peace Frogs Travel/Outfitters has donated over 150 coats to International Neighbors in the two years we’ve done the drive. We thank you and appreciate your donations to this terrific cause.
Coats can be delivered to Peace Frogs Travel/Outfitters during the business hours of 10-6p, Monday-Thursday, 10-5p Friday or 10-2p Saturday. The coat drive runs October 15-November 15. We have currently collected 91 coats!

Packing for a vacation or business trip can be daunting. It forces you to look into the future and make decisions based on what you predict the weather will be, what activities you will be participating in and what you’ll need to be comfortable. Once you’re done thinking about what to pack you must fit all those items into a piece of luggage that is much smaller than, say, your bathtub.
We approach packing as an art and a skill.
Everyone who works at Peace Frogs Travel/Outfitters is a Packing Specialist and we are here to help make the task of packing easier, more efficient and enjoyable. We can teach you how to pack for specific types of travel as well as advise on what to bring, how to fit it all in your suitcase and talk you out of packing too much.
Women’s Travel Alliance
Connect | Inspire | Travel
The Charlottesville Women’s Travel Alliance meets several times a year to gather like-minded women who are passionate about travel. Women of all ages and travel experiences are encouraged to come and network with other women, share special travel moments and learn about travel from the unique vantage point of the female traveler.
Our goal is to inspire women to go out and explore the world. We hope to provide the opportunity to share ideas, plan small group trips and motivate you to take flight. We have a private Facebook page if you’d like to join. Email us to request that your name is added to our mailing list.
