About Us

Founded in 2005, the Big Reno Coat Drive is a non-profit charity organization which is supported by many businesses and volunteers within our community.  The mission of the Big Reno Coat Drive is simple “People helping People.”  Over the last 12 years, with the help of local businesses and residents, we have collected over 20,000 coats.

The coats we collect go directly back to our community. They are donated to various agencies and schools, including but not limited to, the Reno Sparks Gospel Mission, Casa De Vida, Northern Nevada HOPES, Step 1, Inc., Step 2, Children’s Cabinet, and many other agencies.

If you have a local group,family, school, or organization in need of coats, please contact us. Our goal is to help everyone.

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does. ~William James
