Motorcycle club hosts veteran coat drive

Local News

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — A motorcycle club is collecting coats for veterans. Members of the Blue Crew are first responders and military veterans themselves.

That’s what inspired them to host their first coat drive last year. They say no veteran should ever go cold. In 2016 — they collected 160 coats. They’ve brought in 30 so far this year, but they’re aiming for at least 200.

They’re accepting new and used coats. You can drop them off at any Starcrest Cleaners location in Champaign or Urbana until December 1. The coats will be dry cleaned, then donated to the VA hospital in Danville.
