Coats for Kids Campaign
Donate to Coats for Kids
You can help keep Grande Prairie warm each winter. Donate your gently-used winter-wear to Coats for Kids. Drop off your jackets, pants, snowsuits, mitts & toques at Crouse’s Cleaners. Donations will be accepted September 15 to October 15, Monday to Saturday 6am-6pm. Children are the focus of the program, but items will be accepted in all sizes. Materials must be washable (thanks, but we cannot accept boots, leather, suede, or wool).
Donations are cleaned & redistributed free of charge to those in need throughout the month of October.
Coats for Kids Distribution
Unfortunately, there will not be a store this year to distribute winter wear, due to COVID-19. Instead, all winter wear collected is being distributed through the Family Education Society. If you are in need of winter wear, you can contact the Family Education Society directly at 780-830-0920 to request items.
