Coats for Kids
THANK YOU, EASTERN IOWA FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!
Coats for Kids 2020 was a tremendous success. We raised over $43,000 and that allowed us to purchase nearly 2,000 coats for needy kids in eastern Iowa. We were able to partner with several distribution sites including the Salvation Army, HACAP, several school districts, churches and shelters to help make sure these coats are being used by those in the greatest need.
We look forward to an even more successful 2021 and the chance for all of us to Show You Care. Dave Wright Subaru, Mercy Medical Center, GreenState Credit Union and Eells and Tronvold Law Office make the entire Show You Care program and Coats for Kids possible. Please let them know you appreciate their support.
