Coats for Families kicks off Saturday

Your donation of a new or gently used coat can help keep someone warm in Hampton Roads this winter. WAVY-TV & FOX43’s annual Coats for Families drive helps provide warm clothes to those in need from the Southside to the Peninsula.

Coats for Families will officially kick-off the coat collection drive on Saturday, November 14 at Old Dominion University as the Monarchs take on the University of Texas Miners. WAVY-TV 10 and community partner Albano Cleaners will be collecting new and gently used coats from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. on campus at Kauffman Mall. Coats can also be donated at the entrance to Ballard Stadium.

Drop Off Coats: November 14, 2015 – January 10, 2016

Distribution: December 12, 2015 & January 16, 2016

New and gently used coats can be donated at these locations through January 10, 2016:
