Looking to get rid of a few winter coats you no longer use? First Interstate Bank would like to take those coats and hand them off to kids and adults in need.
It's part of their "One Warm Coat" drive going on until next week Friday, October 26. They're looking for clean, gently used coats, hats and gloves. Drop off boxes can be found at all First Interstate Bank locations in Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota.
First Interstate will give the winter wear to local organizations and they will be given out, free of charge. Coats of all shapes and sizes are accepted.
The drive began this past Monday, October 15 and collection boxes are already filling up.
"The effort that you're making to collect these coats is directly impacting people in the community," said First Interstate Bank Region President Keith Cook. "And often times you can't really feel that impact or see that impact but you sure can by this particular program."
This is First Interstate Bank's fourth year participating in the coat drive. Over the past three years they have collected more than 10,000 coats.
One Warm Coat is a national non-profit organization that supports and encourages coat drives. Since the organization came together in 1992, more than one million coats have been collected and provided to those in need at no cost.
