Since its inception in 1987, Give A Kid A Coat has collected, cleaned and distributed more than 866,807 coats.

“It’s great to see our community all working together year after year for a common cause,” said Chris Edwards, president of A Cleaner World.

The collection process is over, but the Salvation Army continues their work of distributing the coats. Families in need of coats can go to acleanerworld.com or contact their local Salvation Army office for distribution information.
