Coats for Kids: School Challenge

Your generosity could bring warmth and comfort to a child living in your neighborhood.

As the temperature drops, some families will be struggling to afford coats for their children.

We are kicking off our annual Coats for Kids campaign. We are collecting new or gently used, clean coats for children in need from October 1 – 29.

We’re challenging local schools to collect as many coats as possible. Schools leaders need to ask students to bring in new or gently used, cleaned coats. The coats will be collected by a representative of the local agency that will be distributing the coats after the promotion.

RiverValley Ag Credit will then provide a Fall Harvest Pizza Party for the classroom with the highest percentage of coats-to-students donated.

If your school or some of your classes would like to take on this challenge, please contact Patrice Hoffman either by emailing phoffman@wpsdlocal6.com or calling (270) 415-1979 by October 12.


Here’s a look at the schools participating so far:

  • Lyon County Elementary
  • Fulton County HS
  • Marshall County Elementary
  • 5th grade Benton Elementary
  • Southwest Calloway Elementary School
  • Farmington Elementary
  • Central Elementary in Marshall County
