2017 Coats for Kids

In 2016 The Salvation Army distributed 4,636 coats with the help of 169 volunteers during our Coats for Kids Distribution Days.  Help us meet and exceed that number again this year!  Experience the joy of giving warm winter clothing to children in need in the Milwaukee area.  Volunteers will assist during distribution in helping the clients locate correct sizes, counting coats for check out and assisting in carrying coats to their vehicles.

Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, be able to stand on concrete floors and carry up to 10lbs.
