Chicago Bears Coat Drive

Chicago Bears Coat Drive


Thanks to The Chicago Bears and Jewel-Osco, The Salvation Army will distribute thousands of coats to families in need, through the Chicago Bears Coat Drive.

The partnership, now in its 29th year, collects coats throughout the city of Chicago and the suburbs for Salvation Army clients in need. With three decades of donations under our belts, the Bears and Jewel-Osco Salvation Army Coat Drive has helped distribute hundreds of thousands of coats to those in need – enough to fill Soldier Field… twice!

Thanks to supporters, during 2016,
The Salvation Army collected 22,282 coats
for people in need

Donate to the Coat Drive

The coat drive will run October 24th through January 1st.

New and gently used coats can be dropped off at any Chicagoland Jewel-Osco location. Coats for children and women are in the greatest demand.
