Southern Maryland’s long-range forecast is showing temperatures in the 70s and 80s, but winter and frigid temperatures will be here before you know it!

And while many kids in Southern Maryland are prepared for cold weather and snow, many others don’t have the right gear to keep them warm throughout the winter.

That’s why nearly 20 years ago, REALTOR Anna Jones of EXIT Landmark Realty launched Coats of Love. She had a strong desire to provide warmth for children and adults in Southern Maryland who need it, and she began the program to enlist the community’s help.

From now through Nov. 9, you can donate new or gently used coats to Coats of Love using one of seven drop-off points in Southern Maryland. All sizes of coats are needed, but there is a special need for coats for school-age children in sizes 5 to 16.

The drop-off sites are:


2530 Riva Road
Annapolis, MD 21401

172 West Street
Annapolis, MD 21401


107 Centennial Street, Suite 200
La Plata, MD 20646

How to Prepare Your Coat for Donation

How do you know if a coat is suitable for donation? Coats should be in brand-new, like-new, or gently used condition. Still not sure? Ask yourself whether you would let your own children wear the coat. If the answer is no, the coat is not suitable for donation.

Follow these guidelines for preparing your coat for donation:

  • Check for rips and stains on the outside
  • Check the inner liner for tears
  • Make sure the zippers work
  • Make sure buttons and snaps are property attached
  • Check for odors
  • Empty the pockets
