19th Annual Coats for Kids Drive
The 19th annual Coats for Kids winter coat drive will run October 14th – January 11th.
In these hard economic times there are thousands of individuals in our very own community that are without a warm winter coat. We want to thank our promotional sponsors, Jordan’s Furniture, KISS 108, Wicked Local, Fox 25, and Jamn’ 94.5 for their continued support. We’d also like to thank the hundreds of schools, community, and corporate collection partners that help to make Coats for Kids a success year after year.
Please bring your gently worn warm winter coats to any Anton’s Cleaners or Jordan’s Furniture between October 14th and January 11th. Coats will be cleaned free of charge by Anton’s Cleaners. Once collected and cleaned, coats will be distributed free of charge through the Coats for Kids Distribution Partners network, which includes organizations such as Massachusetts Community Action Programs (MASSCAP), Salvation Army, Middlesex Human Service Agency, BU Medical Center Outreach Van Project, Wish Project, Community Giving Tree, Mental Health Association of Greater Lowell, Strafford County Community Action, Catholic Charities, Dorchester House MSC, Carolina Hill Shelter, Taunton State Hospital, Children’s Services of Roxbury and Harbour House Family Shelter, to name just a few.
