This is a really great program to be involved with. As agents we are fanned out all over the communities and very mobile so it's the perfect fit! In our office, volunteering agents work with a school for coat collections. This year I am working with an Elementary school here in Spokane's Emerson Garfield neighborhood. We usually get a total of tens of thousands of gently used and even new coats, donated. In some years I have picked up several car loads packed with coats from my participating school.
If you have kids and noticing that last years coat isn't fitting as well and your planning on buying a new coat, don't forget to donate the previous gently used coat. You may also buy new coats and donate as well; we get lots of brand new coats in our collection boxes from generous folks.
There's many places around the area to donate and here's a few: send the coat in with your youngster to his or her participating school, or any Coldwell Banker Tomlinson Open House or office and help kids keep warm this year with a nice coat. All kids need a nice coat to keep warm and fridgid temperatures are right around the corner! kxlycoats4kids facebook page
