Coats for Kids



The Children’s Hospital of Illinois, in partnership with WEEK TV and The Salvation Army, are sponsoring the 28th annual Coats for Kids program to make sure that every child in our community has a winter coat this season.  Used or new coats in children’s and young adult sizes are now being collected and cleaned until December 6.  Over 32,797 coats have been collected, cleaned and given out to area children in need.

Applications and coat distribution will be done at The Salvation Army’s Family Service Office at 417 N.E. Adams. Their will be a mass distribution of the coats beginning Monday, November 4 at The Salvation Army Corps Community Center at 2907 W. Nebraska Avenue in Peoria. After the week-long distribution, the coats will be available for parents to pick-up when signing up for Christmas assistance at The Salvation Army. For more information, call The Salvation Army at 655-7272.

The Coats for Kids collections run through December 6.
