St. Vincent de Paul Northern Kentucky has started collecting new and gently used coats, hats, gloves and mittens and scarves to distribute to local families in need. A bin will be at the Fort Wright City Building until mid January.

Donate new and gently used coats, hat, scarves and gloves (or mittens) for our Annual Coat Drive and help our Northern KY Neighbors stay warm this winter! The goal this year is to give away 3,000 coats! There is a special need for plus size and children’s coats. Donated coats can be dropped off in the lobby of the city building.

They need volunteers to crochet or knit hats & scarves (or mittens) to share with the coats! They will provide the yarn and a pattern if you need one.

On November 18th they will need volunteers to help sort coats at the Erlanger store from 9am to 1. Email Vicky if you are interested!

The distributions of coats will be on December 2nd from 9am to Noon at John G. Carlisle Elementary School in Covington, Newport Primary School and St. Henry Church in Erlanger; January 6th from 9am to Noon at the Life Learning Center in Covington; Wednesday, November 1st from 10am to 2pm at the Falmouth store.

Volunteers are needed to help make this program a success. Call or Email Vicky Peterson 859-446-7721 or fill out a volunteer form.

Share the warmth by dropping off gently used coats at the Fort Wright City Building, 409 Kyles Lane, Fort Wright, KY 41011.
