Spreading the Warmth – Coats for Kids Campaign Now Underway


coatsforkids-logoSpreading the warmth – that’s the goal of the 21st annual CTV Coats for Kids Campaign with the help of community supporters, volunteers, and individuals from Community Living Algoma.

An annual sponsored program for the past 20 years.  Coats for Kids provides infants, children, teens as well as adults with gently used winter jackets, snowsuits, boots, and other suitable winter wear.  The program began when it became clear that children of all ages were struggling through cold northern winters without the proper clothing to keep them warm and dry.

The following community supporters are currently collecting gently used winter jackets, snowsuits, boots and outerwear until Friday, October 28, 2016.

Drop off locations are as follows:

  • Fountain Tire
  • Algoma Financial Group
  • Skeggs, Paciocco Law Firm
  • Floreani O’Toole Orthodontists
  • Jon’s Medicine Shoppe
  • Great Lakes Honda

Coats for Kids distribution will be held at Community Living Algoma at 105 White Oak Drive East on Saturday, November 12 from 10 am to 1 pm.
