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:
Donate or help us collect all sizes of gently used coats, hats, gloves, snowpants, scarves & boots. Drop off your donations at the United Way office during our coat drive:
Monday, October 3rd - Friday, October 14th, 2022. 

Coat Distribution:
During our Distribution period Douglas and Pope County residents are welcome to come pick out cold weather items they are in need over at the United Way office, located at 503 Hawthorne Street in Alexandria.
