CANHelp’s 17th Annual Fall Coat & Blanket Drive

The winter months can be a tough time for everyone, especially those already struggling to get by. Thankfully, for those in Hopkins County, help is available.  Please join CANHelp by participating in their 17th Annual Fall Coat & Blanket Drive to ensure everyone in Hopkins County stays warm this winter.

This week, CANHelp and its partners began accepting new and gently used coats and blankets of all sizes from now through the end of the year.  In seventeen years, CANHelp’s Annual Fall Coat & Blanket Drive has provided thousands of coats and blankets to those in need in our communities. It is a great way for individuals and families to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors by giving new or clean gently coats and blankets that are no longer needed.

For the past few years, CANHelp has also chosen a local Hopkins County school to provide new coats for students of all ages in need. This year, we are excited to choose North Hopkins ISD.

Donations may be dropped off at CANHelp located at 613 Gilmer St. or at City National Bank (Mockingbird Lane location), Alliance Bank (Downtown location), iFocus Vision Care, Head2Toe Nutrition, and Starbucks all located in Sulphur Springs. Anyone wishing to make a monetary donation toward the purchase of coats can also scan the QR code on the official flyer or visit

All donated coats and blankets will be distributed at CANHelp to those in need. If you are in need of a coat or blanket or know someone who is, contact CANHelp at 903-885-9797 ext. 3 for more details or stop by the CANHelp office and provide proof of Hopkins County residency.
