Letter: Coats for Kids gets a new lifeThank you, KFGO, Go Radio, for stepping up to the plate and sponsoring “Coats for Kids and Families Too.” Thank you also to Camelot Cleaners and Sanford Health for co-sponsoring this event, which kicks off this Saturday.
I volunteered at this event last year and was amazed at the number of like-new coats, hats and mittens that were donated. Each family wishing to have winter wear had registered before the pick-up days, and each family member could “shop” for a coat for themselves plus hats and mittens. The day I volunteered, we had several requests for larger-sized women’s and men’s coats, plus mittens and scarves in all sizes.
We are so blessed here in the Red River Valley, and I know this community will step up to the plate to donate gently used winter outerwear for this event.
On behalf of the Fargo-Moorhead Area Association of Realtors, we support the Salvation Army and its sponsors during this event.
Please join us in cleaning out your closets and donating warm winter clothing to “Coats for Kids and Families Too.” Everyone in the Red River Valley deserves a warm winter coat.
