GIVE A KID A COAT 2019 CAMPAIGN ENTERS FINAL WEEK
The 2019 Give A Kid A Coat campaign is entering its final week, and we are currently 2,474 coats behind week four of last year. To date, Give A Kid A Coat for 2019 has received 14,059 coats.
“We want to especially thank Fox8/WGHP, 1075WKZL, and WKRR/Rock 92 for their big advertising push last week to increase the number of coats donated,” says Chris Edwards, President of A Cleaner World. “Although we are still behind last year at this time, this past week we caught up over 1,250 coats from the previous week. We’d like to aim for 5,000 coats this last week so that we can keep as many children in our community as warm as possible.”
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 http://www.acleanerworld.com/aboutus/givingback.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 accepts 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 WKRR/Rock92. This year’s campaign ends on Saturday, February 9, 2019.
