Warm Coat Day

This year marks the 25th year for the warm coat drive which was started in 1994 by local Girl Scout Cadet Troop 628. NFCC collects new and gently worn coats and jackets as well as accessories such as hats, scarves and gloves, for adults and children, throughout the month of October culminating with Warm Coat Day on Saturday, October 26. 

Last year, NFCC distributed over 1,400 coats and accessories. Your donations will help families stay warm this winter.
