When families struggle to put food on the table and keep the heat going, the cost of a decent winter coat becomes unfeasible. That’s where you come in. Please consider becoming a “Coats for Kids” donor and buy a new coat for a child or adult in need. You can also go to your closet and donate the coats that haven’t been worn in years. The Salvation Army will then distribute the new and gently used coats, hats, mittens and boots of all sizes to area families in need. During the next few months coats can be donated at the following locations in Monroe and Lawrence County. Spirit 95 Radio will be hosting several live broadcast throughout the month of October. Come meet the Spirit 95 broadcasters and Salvation Army staff at one of the live broadcasts.
