Together, we can make sure no one is left out in the cold!

For many people across Cincinnati, there is simply no extra income to purchase a winter coat.

The 5 Cares Coat Drive helps ensure that no one in our community goes without proper protection against the cold winter.  Your generosity provides warmth and hope to those who need it the most. 

The drive runs from October 21 - December 9.

We have an URGENT NEED for childrens coats and plus-size adult coats.
