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.
