Give A Kid A Coat 2018 Campaign Enters Final Week
The 2018 Give A Kid A Coat campaign is entering its final week, and we are currently 1,189 coats ahead of week four last year. To date, Give A Kid A Coat for 2018 has received 16,533 coats.
Major Stan Colbert from The Winston-Salem Salvation Army says: "As we head into the last week of Give A Kid A Coat, it's vital to remember that each donation, each coat, means a child, a daughter, a son, who will be warm on a cold winter's day. It means a parent who won't have to choose between food or a coat for their child. When you donate, you become a blessing for a family in need and you are blessed in return."
If you would like to donate a coat to keep a child or adult warm this winter, simply drop off an outgrown coat or a coat no longer being worn at the nearest A Cleaner World location. A Cleaner World will clean and repair the coats and then send them to The Salvation Army for distribution. Families in need of coats can visit www.acleanerworld.com/GiveaKidaCoat.aspx to check on distribution times and locations as these vary by city. If you don’t have a coat to donate but would still like to help, The Salvation Army accept monetary donations ear-marked specifically for Give A Kid A Coat. Donations will be used to purchase new coats in much needed sizes and to help offset Salvation Army expenses associated with distributing coats.
Give A Kid A Coat is sponsored by A Cleaner World, The Salvation Army, Fox8/WGHP, 1075KZL, and Rock92. This year’s campaign ends on Saturday, February 10, 2018.
