LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– Fayette County Sheriff Kathy Witt and partner agencies will launch her office’s 6th annual coat drive.

This year’s drive is in honor of Diana Ross, a local advocate and champion for victims of domestic abuse, who died over the weekend.

The launch is set for Friday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. at Chase Dry Cleaners on Ashland Avenue.

You can also drop off coats at five Republic Bank Locations:

Andover: 3098 Helmsdale Place

Harrodsburg Road: 2401 Harrodsburg Road

Tates Creek: 3608 Walden Drive

Vine Street: 333 W. Vine St. Suite 102

The drive runs through Dec. 31.

Last year, the sheriff’s office collected more than 400 coats to distribute to people who expressed need during the 2017 coat drive.
