The simple truth is that there are children (and parents) in Hampton Roads who do not have a coat to keep them warm this winter.... at the bus stop, on the walk to school, or on their way to work. The mission of the local Coats for Families drive is to provide new and gently used coats to kids, teens and adults in need across the Hampton Roads region.
To Donate: Coats are being collected now through January 20, 2019, at any Albano’s Cleaners, Hampton Roads Honda, First Advantage Federal Credit Union, Johns Brothers Security and Planet Fitness locations in Gloucester and Elizabeth City.
To Receive: 10 On Your Side Coats for Families distributions will be at the following locations this season. Dates of distribution vary by location. Please follow link below for specific dates, any program requirements, and information on the location closest to you.
