Coats for Kids

Send this page to a friend Email envolope

Coats for Kids 30th AnniversaryOne in three Milwaukee children are living in poverty. During the cold weather months, many children arrive at school without a warm coat. This year, with the help of FOX 6 and our program sponsors, we have a goal of collecting 10,000 coats. Coats are picked up at various drop-off sites throughout the city by the donated services of Bonded Transportation Solutions. The coats are then delivered to The Salvation Army where they are sorted by community volunteers and made ready for cleaning through the donated services of ITU. Coats are distributed through Milwaukee Public Schools, other child serving agencies, and to families in early November
each year.

 

DONATIONS ACCEPTED SEPTEMBER 15 – OCTOBER 12, 2014

IMPORTANT:

ALL sizes of children’s coats are needed. ALL sizes of children’s coats for the younger kids, and ALL sizes of adult coats for the teens and older children. Coats will be cleaned for free by ITU and distributed by the Salvation Army.
