Every year, more and more needy children go to school without warm coats. It’s a real challenge to keep our community’s kids properly protected from the winter cold. If we pull together, we can make a big difference right here in our own community.
Coats for Kids is again partnering with Armstrong Cleaners and Formalwear, G101.3 and WKBV/ESPN. During this coat drive, Richmond area residents are encouraged to bring in warm coats, in good condition to one of the several drop off locations. Find all drop off locations by texting the word “COAT” to 765-939-1013. All Richmond Armstrong Cleaners and Formalwear locations are drop-off points.
The 2020 Coats for Kids drive begins Monday, October 5th. Be sure to tune in to Armstrong’s own Will & Kim Drook on G101.3 at 7:30 am LIVE in the studio on Thursday, October 8th!
The Coats for Kids coat drive is a great time to get the right sized coat for your growing kiddos, clean out your closets, and maybe even find a coat at your favorite thrift store to donate. (We are also collecting gloves, mittens, and scarves during the coat drive.) After the coats and items are collected, Armstrong’s team will clean them and get them ready for distribution. Stay tuned for distribution details.
Thank you in advance for your support of Coats for Kids and for continuing to care about your community!
