    How and Where to Donate to the Annual NBC 5 and Telemundo Chicago Coat Drive This Holiday Season
    Donate new or gently used coats and boots to Cradles to Crayons as part of this annual event.

    Every kid in the Chicago area needs the proper gear to stay warm this winter, and young children outgrow basic items like clothes pretty quickly. 

    That’s why we’ve partnered up with Cradles to Crayons, an organization committed to providing local kids everyday essentials when they need it the most. 

    We’re collecting new and gently used boots and coats in sizes infant to adult medium to help area children and teens in need. 

    Join us and let’s make a difference together! See below for a full list of collection locations and dates.
