Coats for Kids

Coats for Kids
Posted on 11/06/2017
Did you know that 14% of children in Travis County and 74% of children in Del Valle live at or below the poverty line? These children are in our own backyard and spend many cold mornings waiting for their school bus. COATS FOR KIDS partners with Jack Brown Cleaners, 98.1 KVET and KVUE to collect and distribute
coats to eligible children and teenagers in Central Texas. This year, WESTSIDE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL is supporting with COATS FOR KIDS to help make a difference in each of these children’s
lives.
We will be holding a coat drive Nov. 13th – Dec 6th and we need your help! In the spirit of competition, we are hoping to collect the most coats and be featured on 98.1 KVET in December.
Below are ways to help:
1. Donate coats to our drive! We will have a bin for you to drop off new or gently used coats at Car A & B and at the front entrance.
2. Donate dollars! Each $15 donated to COATS FOR KIDS contributes to a new coat for a child in need. You can donate online at www.jlaustin.org/coats and clicking “DONATE”. Please include our group’s name, WESTSIDE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, so that our drive gets credit in the competition.
3. Social Media! When you donate a coat, please let others know by using a form of social media.
Please note our school, WESTSIDE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL and use #coatsforkids. Each mention on social media will help bring attention to our drive as well as add additional points towards the
competition.
Thank you for your consideration!
