Thousands in Hampton Roads struggle to stay warm each winter and sadly, the numbers continue to rise.

For 29 years, WAVY-TV 10 remains the only local news station in our region helping those struggling to stay warm by collecting NEW or gently used coats for all ages and sizes. Once again, local businesses, non-profits, and churches have teamed up to make the Coats for Families mission possible.

10 On Your Side collected coats from November 12, 2021 through January 23, 2022. We accepted donations of new or gently used coats at our sponsor coat drop-off locations listed below.

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

Everyone in need will have multiple opportunities to receive a coat this winter. 

Check below for coat distribution dates and times.
