How To Help The Community This Winter? You can donate a new or lightly-used coat for WGNO’s 2020 Coats For Kids Drive. For over 25 years, WGNO and its incredible community partners have collected, cleaned and delivered almost 75,000 winter coats for children’s charities and schools in the New Orleans area.

With the support of community partners such as Blaze Courier, Russell’s Cleaning, American Solutions For Business, NOLA Box, Holy Cross, Amanda Miller Realty, Big Easy Fresh Market, A Place Of Our Own, Lagniappe Pharmacy, More Smiles, Charbonnet Pharmacy and the Healthcare Training Institute, we make it easy for you to provide warmth and comfort for those who need them most during these cold winter days… our kids. Please click on links above to support local businesses in our community and get more information on their services.

We would also like to thank our invaluable community partners at The King Firm, Home Bank and Once Upon A Child serving as drop off locations for your donated new or lightly-used coat. Please continue to check back on the drop off locations listed below as more community partners hop on board.
