Coat drives here in Frederick, Md are such a blessing when the weather gets cold.
Always around the end of November or the beginning of December, we here in Maryland begin to feel the brutal cold winter temperatures.
That’s when many of us thank our lucky stars that we have food, clothes and shelter.
But not everybody is so fortunate.
I can’t even imagine being stuck outside on a brutally cold Maryland winter day or night without a warm coat.
That’s why I felt the need to put together this go-to resource with a list of coat drives right here in Frederick, Maryland.
I don’t know about you, but our closet is stuffed full of coats, with many that we don’t even wear.
So, why not gather them up and donate them to someone who desperately needs it for survival?
Please note that these locations are only accepting specific items that I’ve listed below.
