KANSAS CITY, Mo. – – FOX4 and Arvest Bank are joining Project Warmth in its mission to keep Kansas City area families warm all winter long. From volunteering to monetary and winter coat donations, here’s how you can help spread the warmth in our community.

Donate winter weather gear

Open up your closets and grab any new or gently used coats, scarves, gloves, hats, and blankets and load them into your car for Project Warmth Donation Day on November 5 from 9am to 2pm.

Project Warmth Dropoff locations are at seven major shopping centers around Kansas City. Once you arrive, be on the lookout for Project Warmth signs and Salvation Army trucks to drop off your donations. All items will be given to multiple Kansas City organizations to distribute them to the families and individuals in our community.
