DON'T FOREGET! The 14th Annual Steve’s Coats for Kids collection/drive which began in December 2017 is still ongoing through January 14, 2018. This week has been especially frigid in the Charlotte area... in fact it was colder in the Charlotte metro area than in Alaska! The need for coats for kids is great, especially in these weather conditions.
All coat donations are being distributed through Crisis Assistance Ministry, an independent non-profit agency serving Charlotte since 1975, focusing on preventing homelessness and preserving dignity for Charlotte-Mecklenburg's working poor by providing assistance with rent, utilities, clothing and furniture.
The annual campaign for new or gently used coats for kids is spearheaded by one of Charlotte's top local meteorologists, Steve Udelson. Even in a prosperous city like Charlotte, North Carolina there is a significant population of underprivileged children and a great need for help. Coats in adult sizes are most welcome, as well.
In the past 13 years, Steve’s Coats for Kids have collected over 150,000 coats. Each coat donation spends less than 48 hours in the Crisis Assistance Ministry Free Store before benefitting someone in need. Doesn't that tell you how much need there is?
