It’s time to donate new, used coats

Thirteen years after its inception and more than 165,000 coats later, the Warners’ Warm-up Coat Drive has become a dependable resource for disadvantaged men, women and children in the St. Louis region.

The Washington University in St. Louis Police Department is teaming up with the Kurt Warner First Things First Foundation and Operation Food Search for the 13th Annual Warners’ Warm-Up Coat Drive.

From Nov. 1–14, WUSTL faculty, staff and students are encouraged to donate new and gently used winter coats. Coats may be dropped off at the University Police Deptartment, on the ground floor of Lien House on the South 40.

Alternatively, to arrange for the WUPD to come elsewhere on campus to pick up coats for donation, contact Wendy Oloteo at (314) 935-7698.
