Over the past four years, Jeff and Sarah’s Coat Drive for the Salvation Army has collected 18,871 coats.
Tonight, Salvation Army volunteers will collect coats at McMahon Stadium as the Calgary Stampeders take on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
If you’re going to the game, you can drop a new or gently-used coat off at the game. Or, bring it to Q107 on Friday, Nov. 3 from 9 a.m.. to 5 p.m., 3320 17th Ave SW.
The coats help keep children, teenagers, men and women stay warm during the winter.
Global Calgary’s Leslie Horton dropped by Q107 to talk coats and challenged me to come up with a cheer for the coat drive.
A few years ago, the Stamps cheer team the Outriders invited me to cheer with them for one game.
Leslie was also a cheerleader for the B.C. Lions in the 1980s.
So, we ask you, Outriders – what do you think of this cheer?
