Coats For Kids delivers 7,500+ coats to area schools
Despite the many challenges this year in an all-consuming pandemic, Coats for Kids was still able to deliver brand new winter coats to public school children in need throughout northeast Ohio. During the first two weeks of November, coat deliveries went to:
- 7,507 K-8 public school students
- Four northeast Ohio counties
- 53 school buildings
- 13 school districts
Coats for Kids was able to accomplish this amid a 25% organization-wide budget cut to compensate for the loss of fundraising events and decreased monetary donations resulting from COVID-19.
It is critical to understand, though, that even though we were able to provide more than 7,500 brand new coats to schools, and are in the process of conducting our annual coat collection campaign, we still need financial donations to ensure that Coats for Kids remains viable and to continue our mission in the future.
