Spreading the Warmth – Coats for Kids Campaign is Back!


After having to cancel the 2020 Coats for Kids Campaign it is with great enthusiasm that we are able to once again reinstate the CTV Coats for Kids Campaign within out community.

An annual sponsored program for the past 26 years. Coats for Kids looks to provide infants, children, and teens 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.

This year Cintas Canada Limited Sault Ste Marie location will be a participating sponsor who has graciously taken on the role of collecting and sanitizing all coats and outwear that is collected within the community. As this a huge endeavour on their part it is greatly appreciated that they have taken on this role in support of the Coats for Kids Program.

The following community supporters are currently collecting gently used winter jackets, snowsuits, boots and outerwear until Friday, October 29, 2021.

Drop off locations are as follows:

  • Fountain Tire – Black Road
  • Skeggs, Paciocco Law Firm- Queen Street
  • Floreani O’Toole Dool Orthodontists – Bay Street
  • Jon’s Medicine Shoppe- Korah Road & Second Line
  • Great Lakes Honda – Great Lakes Honda

Coats for Kids distribution will be held at Delta Hotels by Marriot, Sault Ste Marie at 208 St. Mary’s River Drive on Saturday, November 6 from 9 am – 1 pm.
