The 2nd Annual Coats for Cards Clothing Drive

This holiday season Mentor Schools will hold our 2nd annual Coats for Cards clothing drive as we look to provide winter coats, gloves, and hats to Cardinals families in need! Last year, we had over 350 coats donated to help families in need!

Please view and feel free to share the attached flyer. 

We are sending this email to both encourage participation in donating to the drive and to share information about how to sign-up to order an item for a child.  

Dates of Collection: November 29-December 9th

Community members can drop off new coats, new gloves, and new hats at the following locations: 

  • Mentor Board of Education (Behind Mentor High) at 6451 Center St. Mentor, OH 44060
  • Local Cardinal Credit Union Branches
  • Mentor Students can bring in items to their school's office. 

Items will be collected, organized, and distributed to families in need prior to winter break! 

If your Mentor Schools student is in need of a winter coat, winter hat, or winter gloves, please complete the below form and we will do our best to provide those items.  We are unable to guarantee that all items will be provided. 

Please complete the form below for each child you are requesting items for.

Monetary donations are also being accepted and will be used for ongoing support of Mentor Schools families in need which could include clothing, school supplies, food, and other essentials in need. Please make checks payable to the Mentor Board of Education and put "coats for cards" in the memo.  Checks can be delivered to the drop locations or mailed to the Mentor Board of Education at 6477 Center St. Mentor, OH 44060.
