How it Works

Give a Coat or Write a Check to Help St. Louisans in Need.

Strait Realty invites you to join them in helping keep homeless and at-risk St. Louisans safe and warm.

Between December 1 and 14, new and gently used coats may be dropped off at all St. Louis Metro area Carrollton Banks, Central Banks, and Great Southern Banks.

Coats will be distributed to people served by St. Patrick Center and seven other local Catholic Charities of St. Louis agencies. Coats that exceed the needs of these agencies will be offered to other local charities.

Funds collected will benefit the work of Catholic Charities of St. Louis. Give online by clicking DONATE in the top corner. Checks can be made payable to and mailed to Catholic Charities, PO Box 952393, St. Louis MO 63195-2393. Please include CoatCheckSTL on the memo line or envelope.


It Started as a Simple Coat Drive

Thinking of people who are homeless or otherwise in need who are facing another harsh St. Louis winter.

8 Organizations. 1 Cause. A Stronger Community.

It Started as a Simple Coat Drive

In fall 2018, Bob Strait's thoughts turned to people who were homeless or otherwise in need who would soon have to endure another harsh St. Louis winter. Soon he began encouraging friends and business associates to donate coats, offering to personally deliver collected items to St. Patrick Center. The response was so overwhelming that Bob turned to Catholic Charities in 2019 with plans to sponsor a larger-scale effort. Through Bob's energy, and the generosity of the sponsors he recruited (including his wife Christina of Strait Realty) CoatCheckSTL was born. This year's drive benefits not only St. Patrick Center, but all eight Catholic Charities of St. Louis agencies. If the number of coats exceeds the agencies' needs, remaining coats will be offered to other wonderful St. Louis nonprofit organizations.
