Coats for Kids 2023 collection drive
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Winter is coming and temperatures will be dropping. As you think of getting new coats for the family, think about the children who aren’t so fortunate.
To make sure every child has a warm coat this winter, WBAY and Woodward radio stations are teaming up with the Salvation Army, local dry cleaners and other sponsors for COATS FOR KIDS.
Donations are being collected Monday, September 25, through Thursday, October 26.
The annual campaign collects new and gently used coats for those in need from infants to teens.
Look through your closets and boxes and bins in your basements or attics. Mittens, gloves, and hats are also appreciated.
Local dry cleaners work with Coats for Kids to clean them so you don’t have to.
If you don’t have a used coat to donate or time to buy a new one, there are other ways to give. A $20 donation to the Salvation Army can buy a brand-new jacket for a child in need.
