Coats For Kids Makes Changes To Adjust To COVID-19

The annual Coats for Kids campaign has announced some changes for 2020 due to COVID-19.

As has been the case in past years, this year’s campaign will not be collecting or distributing new and gently used coats on-site.

Instead, the Unemployed Help Centre is establishing a voucher system for the coats that will be put into effect at participating local retailers.

The agency is working closely with the Greater Essex County District School Board and the Windsor Essex Catholic District School Board to identify children and youth in need of a winter coat and create a referral system for a voucher to be issued.

All coats will need to be purchased by the referred youth/family, so the Unemployed Help Centre is looking for monetary donations to make this year’s program successful.

Donations can be made online here.
