Corinne Hindes

Walnut Creek, CA | 16

2016 AWARD RECIPIENT

Seeing how the lives of our youth volunteers are changed as much as the homeless they serve inspires me to keep leading!

Warm Winters collects winter clothing from ski resorts and distributes it to the homeless. Launched in 2011, Corinne’s initiative now partners with 32 ski areas in 12 states. Through the involvement of 500 teen volunteers, Warm Winters has distributed more than 32,500 items of clothing to 18,000 homeless people. Corinne’s work has earned her an endorsement from the National Ski Areas Association and training with the Jefferson Awards GlobeChangers Leadership Program. By 2019, Corinne hopes to partner with a total of 60 ski resorts in 15 different states, and to engage 5,000 volunteers to contribute to the cause.
