Bob Wards Coat Drive Starts

Posted: Updated:

Bob Wards Sporting Goods stores across the state are collecting winter weather clothing as part of their annual "Share the Warmth" Coat Drive.

Starting now, through the end of the year, folks can donate winter weather clothing to the sporting goods store in exchange for a $10 gift card.

Bob Wards will then team up with local thrift shops to give the coats to people in need.

"I think it's a great way for us to give something back," said Michael Wolf, an employee at the Bob Wards in Butte. "I know last year we did collect a lot more than what they were expecting. They had to come back several times and pick up coats because our community tends to very generous."

Bob Wards will primarily accept coats and boots.

All Bob Wards locations are participating in the event.
