Staying warm not only protects your body, but also can affect your brain. Giving a child a warm winter coat can have positive, lasting effects.
You may not be thinking about winter, but in a couple months, some kids will be struggling to stay warm. There are local families who may not be able to afford a coat for their child.
That’s where you come in. Your generosity could bring warmth and comfort to a child living in your neighborhood.
We are teaming up with River Valley AgCredit once again for our Coats for Kids campaign. We are collecting new or gently used, clean coats for children in need.
You can drop off a coat at any of the locations listed below between September 30 - October 25.
School Challenge and Church Challenge
Schools and churches can also take part in this year's School Challenge and Church Challenge.
Schools who wish to participate are asked to have their students bring in new or gently used, cleaned coats to their school.
The "classroom" with the highest percentage of coats-to-students donated will be provided a Fall Harvest Pizza Party by River Valley AgCredit.
Schools or churches should contact Patrice Hoffman by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (270) 415-1979 by Monday, October 7 to be included.
Station Coat Collection - Wednesday, October 23
As a final push for our Coats for Kids program, we will be collecting coats at WPSD Local 6 all day on Wednesday, October 23.
Our station is located at 100 Television Drive just behind the Mercy Health - Lourdes Hospital in Paducah.
You can drop off new or cleaned gently used coats anytime between 5 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.
