Kevin Love Announces Fourth Annual Coat Drive


Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love today announced that he has once again partnered with Comcast and The Salvation Army to host a coat drive to help those in need this winter.

The Kevin Love Coat Drive will tip off today (Jan. 23), when the Wolves host the Houston Rockets at Target Center. Love is inviting all fans to bring new coats to any of eight metro-area drop-off locations, including the Target Center Box Office and Comcast service centers, starting today and ending on Feb. 17, with all donations supporting The Salvation Army.

"We've had a mild start to the winter, but it's starting to get pretty cold in Minnesota and many people are in need of new winter coats," Love said. "I want to help out again this year, and with the support of The Salvation Army, Comcast and Wolves fans, we can make a difference this winter for those in need."

As a thank you to those who donate, Love has purchased tickets to the Timberwolves' Feb. 22 game vs. the Utah Jazz. Fans will receive a pair of tickets to this game for each new coat they donate (limit four tickets per family while supplies last).
