Fall is now in full effect and with winter slowly creeping around the corner, many are starting to prepare to bundle up.
This year, as you transition to warmer clothing, consider decluttering those bulky winter coats your children no longer wear, and help The Salvation Army keep underprivileged children warm as the temps continue to decline. Just imagine that feeling of opening your coat closet and actually placing your swiffer in with ease rather than dealing with the daily battle for room with those space eating coats. And the cherry on top-it’s for a great cause!
The Salvation Army’s annual Coats for Kids program is in full swing and locations nationwide are calling for donations of winter coats and jackets for families that cannot afford proper winter attire.
Just by clearing out your closet, you can make a huge difference in a child’s life.
All new or gently used coats can be taken to one of the many Salvation Army ‘Coats for Kids’ collection drives in various communities across the country. To find a participating Salvation Army near you, enter your zip code here.
If there is not a drive happening in your area, you can always donate gently used or new coats to your local Salvation Army Family Store. Just visit www.satruck.org and find the closet location near you or check out the easy-to-use Salvation Army Family Store App, available on the App Store and Google play, where you can schedule a pickup, find locations and get rewards.
As always, The Salvation Army is grateful for your donations and support!
