WUSTL Police help ‘warm up’ St. Louis

Donate new or gently used coats at WUSTL police station

Donated coats help people stay warm on cold winter days.

The WUSTL Police Department is teaming up with the Kurt Warner First Things First Foundation and Operation Food Search for the 10th annual Warners’ Warm-up winter-coat drive.

Through Nov. 14, the WUSTL police station will serve as a drop-off location for students, faculty, staff and others to donate new or gently used winter coats.

The police station is located in Lien House on Shepley Drive in the South 40 on the Danforth Campus.

Operation Food Search will distribute the coats to those who need them most via local homeless shelters, schools and social services centers.

Since the program began in 2001, St. Louisans have donated approximately 120,000 coats to Warners’ Warm-up.

For more information on the drive or to arrange a pick-up, contact Wendy Oloteo at (314) 935-7698.
