WeCAN Coat Drive Begins Oct. 1

September 26, 2019 — As you begin to prepare your wardrobe for upcoming cooler weather, please consider saving your clean, gently-used winter coats, boots and snow pants for WeCAN’s annual Coat Drive. Collection boxes will be located at Westonka Early Childhood Centers, Hilltop and Shirley Hills Primary Schools and Grandview Middle School from Oct. 1 through Oct. 22. Plan to drop off your winter gear during fall conferences!

Coats can also be dropped off at businesses throughout the community and the WeCAN office during that same time frame.

Coats and winter gear will be distributed Tuesday, October 29, from 1-6 p.m. and Thursday, October 31, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. If you or someone in your family needs a coat, please visit the WeCAN office, 5213 Shoreline Drive in Mound. No registration is required.

No time to shop? Consider a financial donation and WeCAN will purchase items to fill in the gaps. Donations can be made online at (mention coat drive in the notes) or mail to WeCAN, 5213 Shoreline Drive, Mound, MN 55364.
