Coats and New Toys for the Children

Before the first cold snap, help us make it a warmer and happier winter for Salvation Army families during WRAL’s 25th Annual Coats for the Children campaign!

Thanks to your generosity, since 1988, WRAL has collected 143,000 coats and raised $1,379,800 to provide warm, winter clothing for Salvation Army families in need.

Our 2012 campaign was our biggest collection to date! Together, we raised $90,000 and collected 10,000 coats and 1,000 toys for Salvation Army families. This year, our goal is to raise $100,000 for Salvation Army families. With your generosity, we know we can serve even more families in need.

We kick off our Coats campaign Saturday, Oct. 12th,  at Ken’s Korny Corn Maze. $1 of every ticket sold Saturday during “WRAL Day” benefits the Salvation Army of Wake County. So come out, get “lost in the maze,” visit with WRAL’s meteorologists and help us launch our 25th anniversary of Coats for the Children! Visit the WRAL booth at the Maze from 10:00 a.m. until 3 :00 p.m. to meet WRAL Weather Meteorologist Mike Maze. WRAL Weather Meteorologist Nate Johnson will join in the fun from 12:30 p.m. until 3:00 p.m., too!
