Give A Kid A Coat wrapped up its 30th campaign on Saturday after collecting, cleaning, and distributing 20,576 coats. But I don’t think of it quite that way; I think of it as 20,576 kids and adults that will stay warm this winter thanks to you. So thank you. Thank you for taking the time to check your closets. Thank you for dragging your kids into the mudroom to make them try on coats, which I know can be like pulling teeth. Finally, thank you for driving to one of our locations to drop off coats. Give A Kid A Coat starts with you. If you don’t bring us coats, then we can’t do our part.
The folks at The Salvation Army do just a terrific job organizing the coats and making the distribution process go so smoothly.
Finally, a big shout out to our friends at Fox 8, 1075KZL, and Rock 92 for sharing important details and keeping everyone up-to-date on what’s going on with the campaign. Give A Kid A Coat is definitely a group effort, and if one piece is missing, then it simply doesn’t work. But I think that photos say so much more than words do, so perhaps this will convey what I’m trying to say.
