2015 Coat-A-Kid Kickoff!
Don’s Claytons had a great Coat-A-Kid Kickoff with the students at Cedar Hall Elementary School!
Every year I enjoy taking coats to one of Evansville’s Title 1 schools and helping the kids try them on and pick one for the winter. It’s a lot of fun – and again this year The IceMen’s Coldstone Blizzard came along!
Kickoff week is ALSO the time we remind the community that EVERY WINTER at Coat-A-Kid we run out of coats BEFORE we run out of kids who need them!
So please remember to bring gently-used and new coats to any Don’s Claytons location over the next few weeks and into December. They’ll be cleaned (if needed) and distributed to area children in need through the Salvation Army, Evansville Christian Life Center and Hope Central on North 2nd Street in Boonville.
We need coats of every size, but especially for infants and smaller children.
Thank you for your help each year! The Coat-A-Kid program has been dear to our hearts since it started in 1986, and has taken in an average of 5,000 coats per year! And we love doing it.
