Kevin Love drops off coats at Salvation Army 18 Dec 13

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Minnesota Timberwolves star forward Kevin Love brought a Range Rover full of coats to the Salvation Army in Northeast Minneapolis on Tuesday as part of his sixth annual winter coat drive.

Love personally packed his vehicle with dozens of coats and got some help unloading them from some of the children who will receive them. The Timberwolves say more than 4,500 coats have been donated this season, the largest number since he started the drive six years ago.

Love signed autographs and took pictures with the children present and gave them tickets to the game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Jan. 1. He says it’s rewarding to see how far the event has come since he started it as a rookie.

Wednesday is the final day of the drive.
