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 Title 1 schools, including but not limited to, the Reno Sparks Gospel Mission, The Life Change Center, Casa De Vida, Northern Nevada HOPES, Step 1, Inc., Step 2, Children’s Cabinet, Safe Embrace, Head Start, and many other agencies.

If you have a local group,family, school, or organization in need of coats, please contact us.

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