The 7th ANNUAL COATS FOR CONNECTICUT campaign is an easy way to make a big difference in someone’s life. Simply go to your closet and pull out gently-used winter coats and jackets that your family no longer wears. Drop them off at any Best location now through January 2.

And thanks to our media partners Eyewitness News WFSB-3 TV, The River 105.9 Radio, Country 92.5 Radio and Young’sPrinting/Fast Signs, the word is getting out to more good people like you with some special coat collection events happening at a Best near you.
