About Us

Founded in 2005, The Big Reno Coat Drive  is supported by many volunteers and businesses around our community.  The mission of the coat drive is simple “People helping People.”  Over the last 10 years with the help of local businesses and residents, we have collected over 15,000 coats.  

The coats we collect go directly back to our community. They are donated to various agencies in the community including the Reno Sparks Gospel Mission, Casa De Vida, Step 1, Inc., Step 2, Children’s Cabinet, and many other agencies.

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

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