Coat Drive

It’s fall, and that means it is starting to get cold outside and we need our jackets and coats. Some people

in the Cincinnati area don’t have the privilege to go out and buy brand new coats for the cold weather and

really any jacket at all. This is why many people have created coat drives. A coat drive is where people in

the community can drop off old but in good condition jackets and coats for less fortunate people in the

community. A common coat drive that people like is the St. Vincent de Paul. It has three locations for you

to drop off your coats. Barrels are located at all Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Gold Star chili

locations except restaurants in a mall. Another place the barrels are located are at Kemba Credit Unions,

and the last place is at your cleaners and Valetone cleaners. This event has been going on for about 140

years, think about all the people that got to stay to stay a little warmer during the cold days. If you happen

to have any old jackets or coats that are in good condition but you don’t use or fit in them anymore, please

drop them off at a coat drive and help people stay warm!!
