Lions fans attending Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day match-up between Detroit and Houston at Ford Field can bring along a new or gently used coat or blanket to help keep those in need warm this winter.

Salvation Army volunteers will be collecting the coats and blankets at Ford Field gates as fans enter the Lions-Houston Texans game for the 22nd Annual Thanksgiving Day Coat Drive.

Gates are schedule to open at 10:30 a.m. with kickoff set for 12:30 p.m.

Thousands of coats have been collected since the drive’s inception in 1991 when former Lions equipment manager Dan Jaroshewich, now of Ford Field, started the program.
