This year’s Koats for Kids collection drive runs through Saturday, October 6. Drop off gently used coats, non-leather hats, scarves and mittens (pinned in pairs) at any area Klinke Cleaners. Donations will be cleaned and given to the Community Action Coalition for distribution in late October.
Please keep in mind that only winter outerwear is needed at this time, and donated items must be in good repair. Though all sizes are needed, distribution volunteers continue to observe a particular demand for infant and toddler, larger teen sizes (16-22), and oversized (XXL and larger) adult sizes.
If you’d like to get involved but don’t have a coat to donate, please consider volunteering an hour or two of your time to the Community Action Coalition to sort or distribute coats. To volunteer, contact Katie Caster via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (246-4730) for more information.
If you prefer to make a monetary donation, go to the Community Action Coalition donation page at www.cacscw.org/donate.php.
Koats for Kids is supported by WISC-TV3 and Magic 98 (98.1 FM).
