Coats for the Community





Each year The United Way of Bemidji Area requests donations of clean, gently used men’s, women’s, children’s and infant's coats, snow suits and other winter accessories for its “Coats for the Community” program to help keep those in need warm and dry during the winter. Approximately 3,000 articles are collected and distributed each year in October. 

A special thanks goes to Paul Bunyan Broadcasting's radio stations, First Lutheran Church, Sentence to Serve and Barb Treat, Dress Club Cleaners, JCPenney, Lueken's, Sport & Spinal Rehab, and Sanford Health of Northern Minnesota for their efforts in helping us have a successful drive each year!
