Winter Coat Drive

Share the Warmth

St. Vincent de Paul joins with media and corporate partners – WLWT, Warm98.5 and Gold Star Chili – to ask 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.

This year’s coat drive has come to a close.

That means that our coat drive partners- your local parish, community organization, or business that may have hosted our iconic blue barrels- have finished collecting coats for our neighbors for this season.

Do you still have a coat or winter items to donate?
Drop them off at one of the following locations:

  • Any Cincinnati St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store. Click here for a list of locations. Have clothes or household goods to donate along with your coats? Call 513-421-CARE for a free donation pickup from your home.
  • Any St. Vincent de Paul donation box near you! These are often hosted by the many local parishes that support our work.


Are you in need of a coat this winter season?
Due to restrictions brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, we are not holding our traditional coat distributions this year. Instead, we are issuing vouchers for coats that can be redeemed at any of the seven Cincinnati St. Vincent de Paul thrift stores. The vouchers can be obtained by calling 513-421-0602 anytime between November 15-February 15. The vouchers must be used by February 28, 2021.
