2018 Give A Kid A Coat Week 2 Recap
The Give A Kid A Coat program has collected 10,897 coats during the first two weeks of the 2018 campaign, which is almost 11% ahead of week two of last year’s campaign. While donations are steady, demand continues to be high.
“The weather has already been very cold this year, and we know it often gets even colder between now and February,” says Fox8’s Van Denton. “Please help us to help children in the Piedmont that need a warm coat to wear.”
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. Distribution information is available through your local Salvation Army or the A Cleaner World website
In addition to coats, The Salvation Army
can use monetary donations to fill in the gaps on coat sizes that aren’t received through collections. If you don’t have a coat to donate, 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
, and The Salvation Army. This year’s campaign ends on Saturday, February 10th.
