CHARLOTTE, N.C., (Sept. 1, 2019) – Charlotte Mechanical has kicked off its ninth annual Charlotte Coat Drive, a three-month campaign to collect coats for The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte. From Sept. 1 through Nov. 15, Charlotteans may drop off coats at donation barrels spread across the city or gift a monetary donation online. The campaign concludes with one last chance to donate at the Warmup Finale party on Nov. 15 at Dilworth Neighborhood Grille.

“Charlotte Mechanical’s Coat Drive is a great opportunity to see what’s best about our city on display – local businesses and individuals all across our community getting involved to make sure every man, woman and child stays warm this winter,” said Brent Rinehart, Director of Communications, The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte. “They are truly the army behind the Army.”

Since 2010, Charlotte Mechanical has helped more than its customers stay warm during the cold season months. What started nine years ago as a small donation of coats from owners Steve and Nancy McLaughlin and their friends, has now become the company’s largest community event. Through the love, generosity and help of special partnerships, the Coat Drive continues to grow each year.

The goal is to collect 5,000 coats for The Salvation Army of Greater Charlotte this year. All coats collected will be distributed to their men, women and children’s shelters and the Boys and Girls Clubs. Charlotte Mechanical funds everything 100% with zero cost to The Salvation Army or any barrel partner.

Donating is easy; there are four options.
• Drop off at a nearby business participating in the drive from Sept. 1 – Nov. 14; find barrel partners at
• Donate monetarily at
• Stop by Dilworth Neighborhood Grille for the Warmup Finale Party on Nov. 15.
• Charlotte Mechanical customers may give to their technician during an appointment.

The Warmup Finale is a fun-filled and lively party, replete with entertainment, onsite activities, free food, and of course, more coat collection. The theme of this year’s event is “Warm up.” In exchange for the donations that will help Charlotteans-in-need stay warm, Charlotte Mechanical will keep donors warm!

In the morning, visitors can warm up with coffee and breakfast from Chick-fil-A. At lunchtime, they can warm up their winter look with a makeup tutorial led by professional (Charlotte celebrity) makeup artist, Lindsey Regan Thorne. And lastly, they can warm up their muscles with one of three afternoon exercise classes led by CrossFit Dilworth or Lem Houston.

All details may be found on the website,, and the Facebook event page.
