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!
