Coats for the Community


2021 Distribution - October 2, 2021



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.
