Give A Kid A Coat
In 1987, A Cleaner World kicked off the Give A Kid A Coat program with Kyle Petty and his son donating the first coat at The Salvation Army headquarters in Greensboro.
Give A Kid A Coat, a program that solicits coat donations from area residents to give to those in need, occurs every year from October to November. Coats donated at any A Cleaner World location after the drive is over are donated to The Salvation Army Family Stores.
