Clean out your closets and do some good this holiday season by donating your unused, outgrown winter coats to the Anton’s Cleaners 19th annual Coats for Kids Drive. To participate, bring your gently worn coats to any Anton’s Cleaners or Jordan’s Furniture location between now and January 11th. The program is accepting adult, kids, and baby sizes. Their motto? “Anyone who needs a coat will have one.” In the past 19 years, Anton’s has collected, cleaned, and distributed over 800,000 coats to families in need in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island. Let’s keep it going!
Local schools are encouraged to get involved with Coats for Kids as well. Jordan’s Furniture is offering a $1,200 prize (Jordan’s gift card) to the first place elementary school and middle school, along with tickets to the IMAX 3D theater. You can check out the school donations leaderboard at the Anton’s website. Want to register your school? Visit http://antons.com/cfk/ for more information.
