Community Events - Coats For Kids - Distribution

Coats For Kids is a partnership between KCRG, our Show You Care sponsors, and area outreach groups to collect and distribute new and gently used coats each fall.  Coats in sizes infant through adult are donated at locations throughout Eastern Iowa, collected, cleaned, and distributed to the children who need them.  The Salvation Army provides a location for the distribution of the coats.

Volunteers are needed on Wednesday, November 8th to provide general assistance on coat distribution day.  This includes interacting with clients, assisting with the registration process, and helping people to pick out coats!

The leads for this activity are Amy Stano and Susanne Hoppes.  If you have any questions about volunteering please contact Jenna Salzbrenner - Volunteer Manager at 319-364-9131 or
