Oelwein Police Department Winter Coat Drive

“To Protect and To Serve= To help our neighbors in need”

Do you have coats around the house that you want to give away? Well, keep them in hand and get ready to drop them off at the Oelwein Police Department. Don’t have time to stop by the police department to drop that coat off? No problem! We will come to you to receive your donations. Rather make a monetary donation for this effort? No problem! The Oelwein Police Department will receive all monetary donations no matter how large or small to help in this effort.

The Oelwein Police Department is sponsoring a winter coat drive during the months of November and December 2014 to ensure that our neighbors of all ages are warm this winter season. The Oelwein Police Department will be welcoming donations of new and slightly used winter coats, hats, gloves, scarfs, and monetary donations during this drive to be used locally within our community.

To donate simply come to the police department with your donation (501 Rock Island Rd) or call the police department administrative line (319-283-4311) and we will be more than happy to come to you and all donations can be kept anonymous.

To help with this cause, officers of the Oelwein Police Department will be participating in “No Shave November”. In order to participate, officers have to contribute to this coat drive and the public can donate, a monetary donation or a coat, on behalf of an officer.
