GIVE A KID A COAT RECAPS WEEK TWO OF 2015 CAMPAIGN
The Give A Kid A Coat program has collected 5,899 coats during the first two weeks of the 2015 campaign, which is 8% higher than week two of the 2014 campaign. While donations are holding steady, demand continues to be high.
“Remember how cold it was last winter?” asks Fox 8’s Chief Meteorologist Van Denton, “With a strong El Nino this year, odds are higher than normal for snow this winter. Please help us provide coats for Piedmont children so they will be ready for the cold.”
To make a donation, simply drop off your outgrown coats or coats no longer being worn to any A Cleaner World in North Carolina or Virginia. A Cleaner World will clean and repair the coats and give them to The Salvation Army to distribute. To receive coats, parents only need to verify the number of children in their family and provide basic name and address information.
In addition to coats, The Salvation Army needs monetary donations to fill in the gaps on coat sizes that aren’t received through collections. There is a special link set up to receive donations especially for the Give A Kid A Coat Campaign at: https://donate.salvationarmyusa.org/nscdivision/give-a-kid-a-coat. Please consider making a monetary gift to this campaign to ensure that every child in the Triad is warm this winter.
Give A Kid A Coat is sponsored by A Cleaner World, Fox 8/WGHP, 1075KZL, Rock92, Campers Inn, and The Salvation Army. This year’s campaign ends on Saturday, November 14th.
