FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - The 2021 “Coats for Kids” drive launched with the start of collections on Monday across northeast Indiana.

Donors are asked to bring a new or gently worn winter coat to the following drop-off sites, from which they will be collected, sorted and distributed.

The sites are:

  • The Volunteer Center (3401 Lake Ave. - Suite 4)
  • Peerless Cleaners
  • YMCA locations in Allen, Wells and Huntington counties
  • Sweetwater
  • Darlington Holiday Warehouse
  • Parkview Ortho Hospital

Collections will continue through Nov. 30.

Monetary contributions can be made online at VolunteerFortWayne.org. That website also includes information on how a child can participate in this year’s program.

Fort Wayne’s NBC is proud to once again sponsor the “Coats for Kids” drive.
