Trey Smith, offensive lineman for the Vols, is calling on East Tennessee residents to donate their unused coats for a good cause.

Knox Area Rescue Ministries is currently holding the 34th annual Coast for the Cold coat drive to collect thousands of coats for those in need.

"I'm asking all volunteers to bring one coat to the drop off location nearest to you," Smith said. "This community is the absolute best. Go Vols and go KARM!"

Those in need of a coat can contact local service agencies or churches to receive a coat voucher to redeem at any KARM store.

The coat drive began on Oct. 14 and will end Saturday, Nov. 9, but KARM stores said they are a little behind their goal. Nearly 4,000 coats are needed to reach the goal.

Children's coats are the most needed item along with XL, XXL and XXXL coats.
