Winter Coat Drive

Share the Warmth

St. Vincent de Paul joins WLWT and Warm 98.5 in asking the community to donate new and gently used coats, as well as gloves, hats, and scarves. These winter items are then made available to neighbors in need this season.

Thank you to all of our partners that hosted a drive this winter and helped us share the warmth with our neighbors this year.

The 2021 Winter Coat Drive will conclude on January 29, 2022. If you are hosting a coat drive and are using a St. Vincent de Paul collection barrel, please schedule a pickup using the form below:
