Donate to Coats for the Cold

Coats for cold drop off boxCoats for the Cold is a local drive to collect warm coats and jackets for our community.

Last year’s coat drive was our largest yet! We collected over 500 now coals and over 4,000 gently used coats that were laundered by Mission Linen and given to local children and adults in need. The number of donations shows what a caring community we share.

With temperatures dropping, the need for coats is as great as ever. This year we respectfully ask you to continue your support for Coats for the Cold in any way possible. Your effort truly makes a difference for our community.
