We’re over half-way through Koats for Kids and the donations are going great. We hve one full week left in the collection period and, to date, we’ve collected 4,198 coats.
We typically see 15% of the total coats collected arrive each week for the first three weeks. Then, in the last week, we get 55% of the coats with 25% arriving in the last two days. In part, this late push is due to the schools making their donations as part of the Collect-A-Coat Contest that is put on by Channel 3.
We want to thank everyone who has donated. We really appreciate it. And, again, if you haven’t donated yet, we still have one week remaining. Get your coats, hats, mittens, snow suits, snow pants, and scarves to us by October 8th!
