Let's help our fellow Mainers this weekend!
On Saturday, December 1st and Sunday, December 2nd is the annual Coats & Toys for Kids drive across the state.
NEWS CENTER Maine's Coats and Toys for Kids campaign is in its 36th year, collecting gently used coats and new, unwrapped toys to help keep Mainers warm and assist families during the holiday season.
Coats will be accepted Thursday, November 22 through Monday, December 31. That's 40 days to get us your donations!
Coats & Toys for Kids Day is December 1. NEWSCENTER Maine will be live from 8 locations throughout the state collecting coats and toys. Find your nearest location here.
If you'd like to bring your donations to us, We will be located at the Polar Express train at the Portland Narrow Gauge Railroad this weekend, on Saturday, December 1st, and Sunday, December 2nd.
Please bring a new or gently used coat or an unwrapped toy! With your donation, you'll also be entered to win a $500 gift card to Springer's Jewelers!
An estimated 836,000 coats and 64,500 toys have been collected since the drive began in the early 1990's.
Hope to see you this weekend!
