Coats for Kids
The Salvation Army Coats for Kids program has been keeping Twin Cities children warm for 30 years. The 2015 coat drive is Oct. 5 – 18, but you can help right now when you give online to buy new coats. A donation of just $15 helps buy a winter coat for a kid in need.
During our coat drive in October, collection bins for gently-used coats and winter gear will be available at all metro area Cub Foods and Kowalski’s Markets. You can also drop off coats a Salvation Army Worship & Service Center.
Host a Coat Drive
We have electronic copies of Coats for Kids posters you can use to advertise your collection, and we are happy to arrange pick up for drives that bring in more than 100 coats. For smaller collections, we ask that donations be dropped off at our divisional headquarters, 2445 Prior Ave. N. in Roseville, Minn.
Please contact Twin Cities Coats for Kids manager Krystle Englund at 651-746-3591 for details on getting started with a drive.
