To celebrate WDTN & Dayton’s CW 40th year of Coats for Kids, Walmart will be donating $10,000 to Catholic Social Services towards the campaign.
In addition, WDTN’s Buckeye Blast will take place on Saturday, September 23rd at Day Air Ballpark where a portion of the proceeds raised that evening would go to buying new coats and winter accessories.
“With this being our 40th year we wanted to do something special for the Miami Valley for all they’ve done for so many throughout the years,” said Melissa Jones, Vice President and General Manager of WDTN & Dayton’s CW. “WDTN’s Buckeye Blast is the perfect event to have some fun while also raising money for this important community initiative.”
Distribution Day will take place on November 3rd with details being announced in the coming weeks.
