    Spreading the warmth – that’s the goal of the 23rd annual CTV Coats for Kids Campaign with the help of community supporters, volunteers and individuals from Community Living Algoma.

    coatsforkids-logoAn annual sponsored program for the past 22 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.

    We need the community’s support to help fill the bare racks at the depot located at Community Living Algoma by October 27th so please spread the word and some warmth!  Take the time this weekend to look through your closets and donate any gently used winter outerwear.

    The following community supporters are currently collecting gently used winter jackets, snowsuits, boots and outerwear until Friday, October 27, 2017.

    Drop off locations are as follows:
