Shopko Optical locations collecting winter coats to benefit those in need


GREEN BAY, Wis.Shopko Optical, a leader in providing trusted eye care to communities for over 40 years, is collecting winter coats during its first annual Winter Coat Drive. Donations will be accepted now through December 17.

Customers can donate clean, new, and gently worn coats and winterwear in all sizes at any Shopko Optical lab, store or corporate location. Each location will have a donation box at its entrance and is partnering with a local charity organization in their respective community to distribute collected coats to those in need.

“Shopko Optical is proud to embrace the communities where we live and work,” said Russ Steinhorst, Shopko Optical CEO. “By collaborating with charitable organizations in the areas we serve, it’s our goal to ensure that no one goes without a coat this winter.”

The winter coat drive is a program of Shopko Optical’s People of Color Community, a company-recognized resource group fostering inclusiveness and providing teammates opportunities to support each other and work together to support business and company culture. People of Color Community is a volunteer-led community within Shopko Optical.

Anyone wanting to donate a coat to their local Shopko Optical center can visit Shopko.com for a complete list of locations.
