Minnesota Twins Announce Plans for Winter Warm-Up Coat Drive

Fans who donate will receive a 20 percent discount at Target Field and Twins Pro Shops during the Nov. 1 – 30 coat drive

The Minnesota Twins, along with Delaware North Companies Sportservice and the Minnesota Chapter of Disabled American Veterans, today announced plans for the Winter Warm-Up Coat Drive to take place Thursday, Nov. 1 through Friday, Nov. 30 at Twins Pro Shop locations and the Twins Majestic Clubhouse Store. The coat drive provides an opportunity for fans to join the holiday giving efforts of the Minnesota Twins by donating new or gently used coats for local disabled veterans and their families. Donated coats will be distributed to veterans and their families, or be sold in the Disabled American Veterans thrift stores to benefit disabled vets.

Fans who donate will receive 20 percent off* eligible purchases at the Twins Pro Shops located in Minnetonka, Apple Valley and Roseville and the Twins Majestic Clubhouse store located at Target Field.

Disabled American Veterans (DAV) is made up exclusively of men and women disabled in our nation’s defense, and is dedicated to one, single purpose: building better lives for the nation’s disabled veterans and their families.

Coats can also be dropped off at the DAV Donation Center in Maplewood (www.davmn.org), however, discounts will only be given for coats donated at Twins’ team stores.
