The Salvation Army's Coats for Kids program has been keeping local kids warm for 30 years. The Salvation Army needs new or gently used winter coats plus new and clean, gently used winter accessories (mittens, gloves, hats, snow boots, snow pants, etc.) to distribute throughout the winter.
COAT DROP OFF LOCATIONS
Do you have a coat (or many coats) to donate? Click here for our list of drop off locations.
DON'T HAVE A COAT TO DONATE?
Donate online and The Salvation Army will purchase children's coats at wholesale prices. Each coat is $15. Alerus Mortgage will be matching all donations up to $30,000 during our campaign so your gift gets coats to two kids in need.
DONATE DURING OUR PHONE BANK
5 EYEWITNESS NEWS will host a phone bank on Thursday, October 8 during the Morning, Midday, 4:30 PM, 5:00 PM, 6:00 PM, 6:30 PM, and 10 PM newscasts, plus Twin Cities Live and the 9 PM newscast on 45TV.
