Carol Daniel has teamed up with the 10th Annual Warners’ Warm-Up Coat Drive, a community-wide collection drive in partnership with Operation Food Search to benefit those in need of proper winter outwear. This year’s drive kicked off at the Rams-Panthers game on Sunday, October 31st. Fans joined Carol Daniel and Kurt’s wife Brenda Warner at the Edward Jones Dome to drop off their coats.
You can donate new or gently-used coats at drop off locations throughout the greater St. Louis area (southern Illinois too). Operation Food Search distributes the coats to those who need them most thru their network of social service agencies. To find a drop-off location visit kurtwarner.org.
