Our 8th AnnualCharlotte Coat Drive
with The Salvation Army

November 16th 2018

About the Coat Drive

We believe everyone deserves a warm coat. The Charlotte Coat Drive began in 2010 through the generosity of Charlotte Mechanical and continues to grow each year through the love, generosity and help of special partnerships. Our goal is to collect 5,000+ coats which will be distributed to those in need that the Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte serves every day.

About the Salvation Army

The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte has served the residents of Mecklenburg and Union Counties since 1904 with care and encouragement to people in need every day. This is their first year teaming up with the Charlotte Coat Drive. All coats collected will be distributed to their men, women and children’s shelters and the Boys and Girls Clubs. We are so proud to partner with them!

Drop-Off Locations

We are so grateful to our Barrel Partners who are spread out through the Greater Charlotte area, making it easy for you to drop off a nice warm coat. Every coat goes to The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte and is distributed to adults and children here in Mecklenburg County. The generosity of Charlotte Mechanical funds everything 100% with zero cost to The Salvation Army or any location. Take a look at the map to see which barrel location is near you!

The Big Party on Nov. 16th

at Dilworth Neighborhood Grille

Our coat drive culminates on November 16 at Dilworth Neighborhood Grille. Between 7 AM and 7 PM, you can swing by and join in on a day filled with entertainment, food, new games and camaraderie. Plus, you will have a chance to meet Sheri Lynch from the Bob & Sheri Show on 107.9 The Link and Bo Thompson from WBT’s Morning News with Bo Thompson. There will also be appearances by Sir Purr, PurrCussion, Hugo the Hornet, Chubby Checker, Homer the Dragon and more!

Give a Monetary Donation

If you can’t make it out to one of our Barrel Partner locations, or maybe you don’t have any coats to give, you can always make a monetary donation to The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte. All the money donated will go toward buying new coats for those in need. Those coats will be distributed to Salvation Army’s shelters and Boys and Girls Clubs in Charlotte. Every little bit helps to keep Charlotte warm this winter!
