Beginning today and ending on December 18th, Love is inviting all Timberwolves fans to bring new and gently used coats to the Target Center Box Office.

Love will personally deliver all donations to The Salvation Army on December 17th but he also wants to remind fans that there is still one more day you can contribute to the coat drive.

“Cold weather is here and many people are in need of winter coats,” Love said. “With the support of The Salvation Army and Wolves fans, we can make a difference again this winter for those in need.”

As a generous thank you to those who donate, Love has purchased tickets to the Timberwolves’ January 1st game vs. the New Orleans Pelicans and the January 8th game vs. the Phoenix Suns.

Fans will receive a pair of tickets to one of these games for each coat they donate (limit four tickets per family on a first come, first served basis while supplies last).

To support his Coat Drive and encourage donations, Love will hold a public meet-and-greet sometime in early December. Details on this upcoming date and location of the appearance will be released soon. Fans can follow the hashtag #SpreadLove on Twitter to stay updated on the latest information and news on the coat drive and future Love appearances.

This year’s coat drive is off to a record start with the Hope for the City organization donating 2,500 coats in October.
