Steve's Coats For Kids Drive In Charlotte: Please Donate By January 14

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?

 

 



Where to drop off new or gently used coats:

WSOC TV Station
1901 N Tryon St
Charlotte, NC 28206

Carol Williams ~ hi Carol... I was an immigrant child who did not live in the lap of luxury, but I was never cold or hungry. I just can't wrap my mind around how many kids go cold and hungry here and every where.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel ~ hi Alexandra and Ron... I have no doubt. My community had a major collection effort of blankets last weekend to bring to the Crisis Ministry... so many homeless who refuse to take shelter.

Good Morniong Nina Hollander - Kids grow out of clothing fast. Having a nice warm coat that fits would mean so much to a child. I hope there are large donations and every kid gets a new coat.

May you have a wonderful day!

Patricia Feager ~ good morning, Patricia. Nice to "see" you. This is a such a big cause in Charlotte each year and more successful with each year. This year, so much more important with temperatures 30 degrees below normal. Can't stand to think of a cold (or hungry) child. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Will Hamm ~ hi Will... those coats disappear within 24 hours of hitting the Crisis Ministry. It didn't get above 28 today. Although they are saying by Tuesday it will be 60 degrees. I, for one, certainly hope so.
