Why You Should Give A Kid A Coat

Did you know that children are less able to regulate their body temperature than adults?  Because of this, a child’s body temperature can drop much more quickly than in adults, leading to hypothermia.  Further, newborns are even more susceptible to hypothermia because of their large surface area per unit of body weight, small amount of subcutaneous and brown fat, and inability to shiver. 

How do children avoid hypothermia?

a.  Never leave the house
b.  Move to Florida
c.  Wear the appropriate clothing when going outside during the winter

Silliness aside.  Obviously having your child (or children) wear the appropriate clothing outside during winter would be the choice of every parent, but some parents must make hard choices.  Buy the kids coats or buy food?  Buy the kids coats or pay the heating bill?  Buy the kids coats or pay for medicine?

Here’s where my happy voice comes in.  Not because I’m making light of any difficult situation, but because we have Give A Kid A Coat.  For 31 years, folks in the Triad, Triangle, Roanoke, and Blacksburg have been checking closets for coats their children have either outgrown or no longer wear, and they graciously donate them at any A Cleaner World location.

Give a Kid A Coat is one of A Cleaner World's favorite events
The folks at The Salvation Army pick them up, take them to their distribution points, and then are available to help as folks come in to select a coat.

Our collection of coats grows every year, donate today to help our community stay warm!
Give A Kid A Coat is such a fantastic program not only because it helps keep folks warm in the winter, but also because it just seems to bring out the best in everyone.  Neighbors that donate coats walk away with a warm feeling; staff members that work hard to pull the campaign together, clean coats, or distribute coats happily work extra hours knowing how the coats bless others; and those that receive coats, well just looking at the photos tells you all you need to know.

The 2018 Give A Kid A Coat campaign kicks off at the A Cleaner World located at 2527 Eastchester Drive on Friday, January 5 and runs through February 10.
