First Things First, Kurt & Brenda, and Operation Food Search are calling on support from greater St. Louis for the 21st annual Warners' Warm-up Coat Drive with the donation of new and gently-used winter coats of all shapes and sizes for Bi-State residents in need. The two-week drive takes place from October 24-November 6 with more than 100 drop-off locations throughout the Bi-State. The campaign will kick off with drive thru drop-offs on October 24 from noon - 3pm at participating Chick-fil-A locations. There are also plenty of indoor collection boxes available throughout the two week drive. As always, Operation Food Search will get the coats to those who need them through their network of school social workers, social service agencies, and homeless shelters. Special thanks to our Warners’ Warm-up teammates: FedEx Office, LookAfter Hair Company, Lion's Choice, A-Mrazek Moving Systems, Chick-fil-A, Home State Health, U-Haul, SSM Health, 5 On Your Side, Joy FM, BOOST, participating police stations, and participating MO/IL credit unions.
