Coats for Kids 2014 kicks off their local campaign November 3rd – December 7th. Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning is proud to join Kiss Country and the Salvation Army again as a collection location for the 2014 Coats for Kids drive. Each year the community and local businesses work with the Salvation Army to collect gently used or new winter coats to keep kids warm in the cold winter months.
The Coats for Kids Campaign was established by the Salvation Army in 1980. For more than 30 years this campaign has brought together organizations, schools, businesses and members of the community with the single goal to donate to children in need. Kiss Country has been part of Coats for Kids in the Central Valley for more than 20 years. Their efforts to bring this issue and coat drive to the forefront, has made a real difference in the lives of so many young children.
Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning have also partnered with St. Joachim School and Lincoln Elementary School in Madera to help benefit our local kids. We are open to the public as drop off location 232 South Schnoor Avenue, Madera, CA 93637 for coats Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. We encourage our customers and members of the community to get involved and help keep the kids in our Valley warm. Last year we collected over 500 coats in Madera. Our 2014 goal is increase that number and collect hundreds of coats in the hope that no child will have to be cold!
