Please Support Koats for Kids
Written by Jim Bartlett on September 13, 2021
The 36th annual Koats for Kids winter coat drive is on! Since 1986, Koats for Kids has collected nearly 335,000 coats for individuals and families who need them.
Magic 98, News 3 Now, Klinke Cleaners, and the Community Action Coalition are seeking donations of gently worn kids’ winter jackets and accessories, including snow pants, snowsuits, mittens, hats, and boots. Drop them at any Klinke Cleaners location now through October 9. Child-sized coats are a special need this year, so we’ve set a goal of 6,000. It’s a lot, but we can do it. Last year, over 6,700 coats were donated.
This year’s donated items will be cleaned free of charge by Klinke Cleaners, then handed off to the Community Action Coalition for distribution from October 28 through October 31. Distribution locations and times will be announced when the dates get closer.
Everything you want to know about Koats for Kids is right here. Listen for updates on the progress of the drive on Magic 98.
