Our 8th AnnualCharlotte Coat Drive
with The Salvation Army

November 16th 2018

We Need You & Your Coats Again This Year

There are thousands of people who need a warm coat every fall and winter across Greater Charlotte. Kids, infants and adults. The Salvation Army generously receives all of the coats and distributes them to The Center of Hope Shelter and the Boys and Girls Clubs. And the incredible generosity of Charlotte Mechanical pays 100% of the operations, marketing and funding of the Coat Drive every year. Read about our new Coat Drive partner!

Drop-Off Locations

Help us reach our goal of 5,000+ new or gently used coats for adults and kids of all sizes. Every coat goes to The Salvation Army and is distributed to adults and children here in Mecklenburg County. As always, the generosity of Charlotte Mechanical funds everything 100% with zero cost to The Salvation Army or any location. Both familiar and brand new drop-off locations will be announced in July.

Our Coat Drive Partner

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. Through their Red Kettles, Angel Trees, Boys & Girls Clubs, Men’s & Women’s Shelters, Veterans services and community stores, they now add the Charlotte Coat Drive as an outlet to touch our community. And we couldn’t be prouder to be their partner.
