Larry H. Miller Dealerships announces its ninth annual “Driving for Coats” community coat drive to benefit the homeless community served by the Boise Rescue Mission (BRM). New and gently used coats of all sizes are needed for both adults and children to stay warm during the winter months. Boise Rescue Mission provides shelter to more than 400 homeless individuals and families each night.

“As the temperature cools and the snow starts to fall, there is a critical need for those who are vulnerable in the community to stay warm,” said Rev. Bill Roscoe. “Coats are a major need during the winter season as many of our homeless guests do not have adequate winter clothing.”

Now through December 3, members of the public may drop off donations at the following locations:
