COLD DAYS, WARM HEARTS runs December 4, 2019 – January 31, 2020


Keep San Antonio warm this winter – donate that old coat that’s taking up space in your closet! The 2019 Cold Days, Warm Hearts Winter Coat Project kicks off December 4th.

The weather is getting colder and the need for new or gently-used winter coats is on the rise for the less fortunate in San Antonio, prompting the start of Five Star Cleaners annual winter coat project, Cold Days, Warm Hearts.

For over 37 years, Five Star Cleaners has been working to keep San Antonio warm for the winter through their annual coat drive Cold Days, Warm Hearts.

Over 135,475 coats have been collected, repaired and cleaned and provided to the good folks at SAMMinistries (SAMM), Christian Assistance Ministries (CAM), and Pearl Street Church for distribution to their clients who may not have the means to purchase coats.


Always searching for ways to gather more coats and provide donors with a token of appreciation, Five Star Cleaners is partnering with Santikos Entertainment and KENS-5.

Donors are invited to drop off new or gently-used men’s, women’s, and children’s coats at any of the 15 Five Star Cleaners stores starting December 4 through January 31. As a gift of thanks, each donor will receive a $5.00 Five Star Cleaners gift certificate good toward any future Five Star Cleaners order, as well as a FREE popcorn coupon and FREE 30-Minute game play card good at any Santikos Theater!

Coats will be distributed to those less fortunate through SAMM, CAM, and Pearl Street Church.

Passionate about giving back to their community, Five Star Cleaners hopes to collect even more coats through their new partnership with Santikos Entertainment and KENS-5. So grab those gently worn coats from your closet or add a coat to your holiday shopping list and drop them at any Five Star Cleaners location. Let’s bring even more warmth to less fortunate women, children and men in San Antonio!
