The Cash for Coats Drive is a community event collecting funds toward the purchase of NEW winter items for Albany kids in need.
Over the years, the Cash for Coats program has distributed tens of thousands of new winter clothing items to Albany schoolchildren. Lodge’s offers a significant discount on any items purchased for the Cash for Coats Drive, maximizing the impact of each cash donation.
