On Saturday, there is a drive-thru coat drive happening at the HyVee at 1315 6th Street NW in Rochester, Minnesota.  Bring your new or gently used, freshly cleaned winter gear to the contactless drive-by coat drive.  The volunteers will help so you don't even have to leave your car.  You'll feel great for giving back to those in need and others will feel warmth this winter thanks to your donation. Learn more at the Facebook event here.
