Extended Traverse City Coat Drive to Benefit Father Fred Foundation

A local fundraiser is helping people in need get winter clothing.

Team Bob’s Heating, Cooling and Plumbing in Traverse City is hosting their sixth annual coat drive.

People can drop off coats at their outdoor trailer at the corner South Airport Road and Park Drive.

It officially ended a couple of weeks ago, but team bob’s decided to extend it a few more weeks so they can help even more people in need.

“Without it being cold it wasn’t top of mind. Now that it’s cold we’re really seeing the donations continue to come in,” Team Bob’s Operations Manager Chris Wood said. “Everyone’s got extra coats, boots, mittens. Just make it really easy to donate and help our community out.”

The coat drive ends on Friday.
