69 WFMZ coat drive promo photo

You might think having a warm winter coat is a given, but not everyone has one. WFMZ-TV wants to change that!

That's why we're teaming up with the PPL Center for our 5th Annual Coat Drive on Friday, November 1st. We'll be accepting new and gently used coats.

Drop boxes will be set up at the PPL Center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the WFMZ Gate at 7th and Hamilton streets. Then, from 5 to 7 p.m. we'll have staff collecting coats at the same location, plus a drop-off lane on Hamilton Street before the Lehigh Valley Phantoms game.

Coats will be cleaned by JC Cleaners, then donated to the The Salvation Army Children's Services: Foster Care & Adoption Program and other Salvation Army programs.

Last year, we collected more than 1,200 coats and we would love to do it again. Help us keep everyone warm this winter!
