Coat Drive and Distribution

We provide coats and cold weather accessories for Douglas and Pope County families free of charge. There are no income guidelines or qualifications to receive a coat. We ask that individuals and families take only items that they or their immediate family members are in need of. 

Coat Drive:

Please save any winter coats or cold weather accessory donations for our Coat Drive which will take place October 1 - 15, 2021. You can make your donation at a local participating business or drop off at the United Way office (503 Hawthorne Street, Alexandria) during the Coat Drive period Monday - Friday | 8am - 3pm. 

Items Accepted: All sizes of winter Coats, gloves and mittens, scarves, snowpants and boots. 

Please ensure donations are warm, washed and have working zippers!
