KENS CARES: Keep San Antonio warm this winter... Donate your used coats

Join the Cold Days, Warm Hearts campaign: Donate an adult or children's coat now through January 31.

SAN ANTONIO — Winter is upon us in San Antonio, and the need for new or gently-used winter coats is on the rise for the less fortunate.

Five Star Cleaners is working with KENS 5, Santikos Theaters and Chris Madrid’s to assure that San Antonio stays warm this winter through their annual winter coat drive: Cold Days, Warm Hearts.

Every year, thousands of coats have been collected, repaired and cleaned, then provided to the good folks at SAMMinistries (SAMM), Christian Assistance Ministries (CAM) and Pearl Street Church for distribution to those who may not have the means to purchase a coat.

Beginning December 26 through January 31, patrons can drop off new or gently used coats to any open Santikos Theater (7 locations), Five Star Cleaners (14 locations), or Chris Madrids. Coats are needed for all ages, from kids to adults.

  • Free regular popcorn and 30-minute game card at Santikos
  • $5 Five Star Cleaners gift certificate
