Coat Drive

Coat Drive
Posted on 12/04/2023
Coat Drive! Dec. 4th - Dec. 22nd. Donate warm, gently used, or new winter coats for children and adults in need at Wollaston Elementary School. All sizes are welcome! Coats ONLY, please

Wollaston School Student Council is teaming up with Caring Partners' Coats for Kids & Families To Collect Winter Coats of All Sizes For Those in Need Through Dec. 22nd.

Winter coats needed to fulfill one mission: “Anyone who needs a coat, will have one.”

In hard economic times and looming cooler weather, a warm coat isn’t a luxury… it is a necessity. In every community, there are thousands of children and adults who may otherwise not have access to warm winter coat this winter.

Wollaston School Student Council is proud to be a collection partner for Coats for Kids & Families. Coats collected at Wollaston School by December 22nd will be professionally cleaned by Anton’s and given to local nonprofits, social service agencies, and schools for distribution.

Sponsored by Anton’s Cleaners, Enterprise Bank, and Jordan’s Furniture, Coats for Kids & Families has collected, cleaned, and distributed 1,212,369 free coats at more than 70 collection locations and events since the program began in 1995.

Coats for Kids & Families accepts warm winter coats that are new or gently used, good quality, and all sizes (especially XL and infant/pre-K sizes). The drive does not accept coats with rips, tears, broken zippers, or permanent stains, nor does the drive accept sweatshirts, vests and spring coats, boots, scarves or gloves.
