As the holiday season has set on the horizon, the biting winter weather has approached the Triad area. On January 6, The Salvation Amy of Greensboro, A Cleaner World, Fox 8, and 107.5WKZL kicked off the 30th annual Give A Kid A Coat campaign. What started as an idea quickly became one of Greensboro’s most important winter campaigns for families in need. This year, we are looking forward to collecting 20,000 coats with A Cleaner World to help bring warmth to children in need.
With over 30 locations across the region of Virginia and North Carolina, the High Point based company collects approximately 40 coats a day according to their president Chris Edwards. The Give A Kid A Coat campaign is a wonderful opportunity for the Triad community to help change a child’s life. Each donated coat is cleaned thoroughly at each A Cleaner World location and then donated to children in need via The Salvation Amy of Greensboro. It is our hope that this campaign will continue to be a staple tradition for generations to come in the Triad community.
If you would like to donate a new or gently used coat, be sure to contact The Salvation Army of Greensboro at (336) 273-5572 or any Triad A Cleaner World location.
