Coats for Families

The Hampton Roads Show, WAVY-TV 10, WVBT FOX43 and our community partners encourage you to help keep Hampton Roads’ families warm this winter by taking part in 10 On Your Side’s Coats for Families drive. 10 On Your Side Coats for Families campaign is more than 25-years in the making.

The mission is to provide new and gently used coats to kids, teens and adults in need across our region. Your generosity helped collect more than 10,000 coats from Southside to the Peninsula last year. This year, with your help we can meet and beat that number!

You can drop off new or gently used coats at Albano’s Cleaners, Ames Cleaners, 1st Advantage Federal Credit Union and Hampton Roads Honda dealers across our region. The gently used coats will be cleaned at Albano’s Cleaners on the Southside and Ames Cleaners on the Peninsula. The cleaned coats will be transported by Harrison’s Moving & Storage to our partnering distribution locations near you.

10 On Your Side Coats for Families distributions will be on December 16, 2017 and January 20, 2018.

New this year, clients at Union Mission and Salvation Army will be able to pick up a coat at each respective location, as needed, starting December 1, 2017.
