Coats for Kids

2006-2007 Drive Results

Anyone in need of a coat will have one…

With the public’s help and over 250 schools joining in the collection efforts, the 2006-2007 Coats for Kids drive ended on January 15, 2007 with one coat shy of a remarkable 57,000 coats collected. In its 12 year history, Coats for Kids has collected, cleaned and distributed a total of 429,120 warm winter coats to families throughout New England.

Our Promotional Partners, FOX25, Boston Bruins and Jordan’s Furniture along with our Distribution, Supporting and Corporate Partners played an instrumental role in the success of this year’s drive.

Applause for School Rewards™ winners!

All participating elementary and middle schools competed for school furnishings and special events. To level the playing field for schools of all sizes, winners are chosen on the basis of the number of coats collected per students enrolled.
