Winter Coat Drive!

The Q 99.7 and the Mental Health Association of Springfield are teaming up to collect winter coats for those in need in our city. Specifically, the many men and women that MHA serves through their various programs including those who are experiencing homelessness and recovering from substance use.

We are looking to collect new and gently worn winter jackets (adults sizes only) for both men and women which will be distributed by the Mental Health Association as they serve those in need during the upcoming winter season. (Special thanks to Stephen Thomas Cleaners in Springfield for providing dry cleaning service!)

Collection Week is Dec 9 - Dec 22, 2019 and we've put together a convenient list of drop off locations:

*** Join NATE from The Q 99.7 on Thursday morning (Dec 12th) in the parking lot of the Dunkin at 296 Cooley Street (5-Town Plaza) in Springfield from 7:30a - 9:00a.  Look for The Q 99.7 Vehicle…he will be there collecting your new or gently worn winter jackets or you can stop by with a monetary donation and we’ll do the shopping for ya!  Plus, everyone that stops by and donates a winter coat will get a Dunkin gift card and other prizes while he's there ; ) ~ Nate
