Warners’ Warm Up Coat Drive in St. Louis

We partnered with Operation Food Search and Kurt Warner’s First Things First Foundation to donate winter coats to needy families in the St. Louis area this November. We’re proud to say 3,600 pounds of coats were given to those in need. The donation was a part of the Warners’ Warm Up Coat Drive.

“Each year the demand for coats in the St. Louis area exceeds the supply collected through our annual coat drive,” said Jen Zink, Director of Programs for the Kurt Warner First Things First Foundation. “As the Warners’ Warm-up Coat Drive enters its thirteenth year, we are excited to receive support from USAgain to assist us in collecting more coats than ever before and keeping more bodies warm this winter.”

Coats were collected at USAgain bins throughout October. We have hundreds of bins around St. Louis, and we thank all who kindly placed their coats in our bins, as they’ll be going to good use this winter. We look forward to future charitable events with Operation Food Search, Kurt Warner’s First Things First Foundation, and other awesome local organizations here in St. Louis!

“We’re tremendously excited to partner with such a great organization,” said Tom Jacquin, Division Manager of USAgain. “The Foundation will ensure that these coats are given to people in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area who need them, and we’ll be continuing our mission of diverting clothing from landfills.”
