Big Reno Coat Drive wrapping up, clothing thousands in northern Nevada for the winter
RENO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) —
The Big Reno Coat Drive wraps up on Wednesday when officials will start handing out thousands of coats throughout the community before the winter months begin.
Last week, Evergreen Carpet Care of Reno helped donate nearly 1,000 coats that employees collected over the past month.
The coats were donated on Thanksgiving day to the Reno-Sparks Gospel Mission for those in need.
Last year, the Big Reno Coat Drive collected and distributed more than 5,000 coats and are hoping donate another 7,000 for this year.
