Our 8th AnnualCharlotte Coat Drive

November 16th 2018

Help Us Collect 5,000 Coats for Charlotte Families in Need

Everyone can agree that we have entered the busiest time of the year. For most of us, it’s usually a festive frenzy of holiday events, shopping and visiting family. However, there are people of all ages, right here in Charlotte, that silently suffer through “the most wonderful time of the year.” That’s why our annual coat drive is so important to us and it’s why we have upped our donation goal to 5,000 new or gently used coats of all sizes. Donate a coat at one of our many convenient drop-off locations and help us keep Charlotte warm this winter!

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 Crisis Assistance Ministry and stays right here in Mecklenburg County!
