NBC 5 Collects 5,000 Coats

Coat Drive Success



    Spend Memorial Day Weekend at The St. Charles Fine Art Show

    NBC 5 Chicago and Telemundo teamed up for a winter coat drive with the Wood Family Foundation and the Salvation Army in 2011.

    The results were astounding.

    Viewers donated 5,000 gently worn coats to Studio 5 to help needy families stay warm.

    The output was tremendous! Last year the station collected 1,300 coats.
