WDTN and Dayton’s CW are proud to kick off the 38th annual Coats for Kids campaign on September 16.
Since the inception of the campaign, Coats for Kids has collected and distributed over 500,000 coats and winter accessories to less fortunate children and adults throughout the Miami Valley.
“This important community initiative has been going strong for nearly 40 years and it’s because the residents of the Miami Valley step up year after year to help others in need,” said Joe Abouzeid, Vice President and General Manager of WDTN & Dayton’s CW. “We’re proud to work with our partners because no person should go without a coat for the cold winter ahead.”
The campaign, which runs from September 16 through October 22, will once again ask residents of the Dayton region to take any new or washable coat or winter accessories they or their children may have outgrown to any sponsor location and place them in the Coats for Kids collection barrel.
Distribution Day will take place on November 5th with details being announced in the coming weeks.
WDTN and Dayton’s CW are proud to work with our partners for the campaign, including LCNB National Bank, Grismer Tire & Auto Service Centers and Catholic Social Services. In-kind partners include Cintas Corporation and RUSH Transportation and Logistics.
