Kids Coat Give-Away [CC High School, GR]
The Knights of Columbus State Council is sponsoring a "Coats for Kids Program". The event will take place at Grand Rapids Catholic Central High School Activity Center Lobby on 319 Sheldon Blvd SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503 on Saturday, October 26, from 10am to 1pm.
Coat sizes from boys and girls size 4 to boys and girls size XL.
No need to sign up, but it is first come -- first serve basis. Children must be accompanied by a parent.
This program’s primary goal is to help kids stay warm in the winter when a child’s family does not have the resources to adequately meet this need. A warm coat means a child can more realistically attend school, go to after-school programs, fit in with other children, play and do all the things that kids do to be kids. In a very real sense, a warm winter coat means mobility. Our mission is to make this seemingly small part of life a little bit easier for these families.
The goal of the Coats for Kids program is to ensure that no child in North America goes without a coat during the winter season. Through the dedication of councils across the United States and Canada, hundreds of thousands of new winter coats have been distributed to children since program inception.
