Chief Meteorologist Hank Allen is out at Holy Cross School in New Orleans (5500 Paris Avenue) asking for coat donations for the kids who need it most as a part of our annual Coats for Kids program.
For over 25 years, WGNO and its community partners have collected, cleaned and donated over 75,000 coats to kids in the New Orleans area. With cold weather rolling in, donating a new or lightly-used coat to WGNO’s 2021 Coats For Kids Drive ensure kids who need them the most stay warm through the holidays and beyond.
With the support of community partners such as Blaze Courier, Russell’s Cleaning, MPress Printing, and NOLA Box, 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 that serve as dropping locations for your donated new or lightly-used coat. Those businesses include The King Firm, Home Bank, More Smiles, Doerr Furniture, Charbonnet Family Pharmacy, Mobility City, SpeeDee Oil Change, Spudly’s Super Spuds, LeBlanc Pediatrics, Holy Cross, Amanda Miller Realty, Stone Interiors and Once Upon A Child. Please continue to check back on the drop off locations listed below as more community partners hop on board.
WGNO’s Coats for Kids runs November 8, 2021 – January 14, 2022. Please tune in to Good Morning New Orleans at 4:30AM, WGNO News at 11AM, 5PM, 6PM and 10PM or click on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/wgno for the latest on how you can help the community during these cold winter days.
