Coat Donations Needed for Toasty on Transit Pop-up Coat Exchange

To help commuters stay toasty on transit this winter, Citizens for Modern Transit, Metro Transit, AARP in St. Louis, the Bureau of Transit Police, St. Clair County Transit District and UMSL are teaming up to host a Pop-up Coat Exchange.

There will be coat racks at the Belleville and North Hanley MetroLink stations from Dec. 6 – 20. If a transit rider needs a coat, they can take one. If they have an extra coat, they can leave one for someone who is in need.

In order to make this effort a success, coat racks need to remain stocked with options for men, woman and children. If you, or someone you know, has gently-used coats they no longer need – please consider making a donation.

Coats can be dropped off at the following locations and events from now through the end of November:

  • Citizens for Modern Transit – Monday thru Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., 911 Washington Ave., Suite 200, St. Louis, MO 63101
  • CMT’s Talking Transit Event – Tuesday, Oct. 22 at 8:30 a.m., St. Louis Regional Chamber Collaboration Center, One Metropolitan Square, St. Louis, MO 63102
  • Quick Bite – Monday thru Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Belleville MetroLink Station, 718 Scheel Street, Belleville, IL 62221

Look for upcoming info about the kick-off on December 6.
