32nd ANNUAL GIVE A KID A COAT CAMPAIGN OFF TO A SOLID START
Give A Kid A Coat, a campaign that solicits coat donations from area residents in order to provide coats to needy children and adults during the winter, has collected 2,147 coats during the first week of the 2019 campaign, and 4,323 since the kickoff on January 4th. Due to inclement weather for the kickoff, the coat count is behind last year as of the end of week 1. As in past years, The Salvation Army in the Triad needs around 25,000 coats to meet the needs of children in our area.
“Last year was my first year being at the kick-off event.”, said Chase Myers of Rock 92. “I was absolutely blown away by the support from local businesses, organizations, and individuals who support the cause.” To help make this campaign a success, simply check your closets for coats no longer worn and drop them off at any A Cleaner World location. The gently used coats will be cleaned and repaired free of charge and sent to The Salvation Army for distribution.
Triad Salvation Army locations are gearing up to begin distribution. For distribution information in your area, please check the A Cleaner World, Fox8, or 1075KZL websites.
Give A Kid A Coat is sponsored by A Cleaner World, WGHP/Fox8,1075KZL, Rock92, and The Salvation Army. This year we are pleased to welcome back AAA Storage as our TV media partner. The 2019 campaign ends on Saturday, February 9th. For additional information, contact Dianne Berberich at 336-841-4188.
