Thousands in Hampton Roads struggle to stay warm each winter and sadly, the numbers continue to rise. For 28 years, WAVY-TV 10 remains the only local station in the region providing a solution to the problem by collecting NEW or gently used coats for people all ages and sizes. Once again, local businesses, non-profits, churches, and the Entercom Radio group have teamed up to make the mission possible.

You can donate a new or gently used coat at any of our sponsor coat drop-off locations listed below.

This season’s campaign runs from November 13, 2020 through February 10, 2021.

WAVY News 10’s Anita Blanton and Tom Schaad support the campaign all winter long.

Coats for Families is fueled by the warm hearts of 10 On Your Side’s long-time partner Albano Cleaners. Albano Cleaners’ main headquarters in Norfolk ensures EVERY gently used coat is cleaned from Southside to the Peninsula. After cleaning, the coats are delivered to 10 On Your Side distribution partners by Harrison’s by Apple Moving.

Entercom Radio Group is the exclusive radio partner for 10 On Your Side Coats for Families.  Your favorite personalities from Z104, 94.9 The Point and 2WD will promote 10 On Your Side Coats for Families on air, on their respective websites and social media pages.

Everyone in need will have multiple opportunities to receive a coat this winter.  All our distribution centers are listed below. The dates and hours of coat distributions varies at each location, please refer to each location for more specific information.
