Those attending the event were encouraged to bring any basic household items, or supplies, to donate to the shelter.

“Today we filled about a 40-foot trailer full of supplies, hopefully maybe raised $5, $10 grand … we will just keep doing these events throughout the year,” said Coats and Caffeine Founders and Organizers Jeremy and London Mincke.

This is the third year for the event.
