Titans Coat Drive This Weekend

Posted Oct 24, 2007

The Tennessee Titans will be collecting coats for those who need them this weekend at the game

(NASHVILLE, TN) October 23, 2007 - The Tennessee Titans are asking fans to show up in record numbers with new and/or used coats of all sizes during the team’s annual coat drive on Sunday, October 28th vs. the Oakland Raiders.  Fans are being asked to bring coats to the game and drop them off in the specially marked collection sites located near each of the stadium entrances where Stratford High School football players will help collect coats. 


By the end of the following week, the Titans will distribute the coats to area non-profit agencies that serve those in need in Middle Tennessee.  Last season’s coat drive collected more than 2,000 new and used coats that were donated to various local charities that included Baptist Children Home, Bethlehem Center of Nashville, Campus for Human Development, Catholic Charities, Magness Potter, Martha O’Bryan Center, Nashville Rescue Mission, YWCA, and the Salvation Army.    


 “Our fans continue to be incredibly supportive of our various game-day drives and we know that this week’s coat drive will be no exception,” said Don MacLachlan, Titans EVP of Administration and Facilities.  “Our fans donate several thousand coats each year and without question help many of our less-fortunate neighbors remain warm throughout the winter months.”


The Titans will continue to host stadium drives through the rest of the season to include a Cell Phone Drive on Sunday, Nov. 4th; Second Harvest Food Drive on Sunday, November 11th and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots drive on Sunday, December 9th


The Tennessee Titans are proud to recognize the best fans in the NFL that continue to support our efforts both on and off the field.
