It’s time again for donating those too-small, somewhat-worn, but still-warm coats to the annual Share-A-Coat program!

Each year, the Boulder Valley Rotary Club collects coats from many of our local schools, cleans them and distributes them to families and children who are in need of them. Hats, gloves, sweaters, mittens, snow-boots, etc. are also welcome donations.

(I want to send a BTW shout-out to our long-term advertising partner Brian Hansen and Art Cleaners for donating all cleaning services for the coats before they are distributed to their happy new owners!)

You can help by placing your coats in the donation box at your children’s school (both child- and adult-size coats are needed). Rotary volunteers will pick up the coats on 11/6, 11/20 and 12/4. The last pick-up is scheduled for December 4. A cash donation will be made by the Rotary Club to a local charity that provides assistance to people in need in the name of the schools that collect the most coats.

Let’s see what we can do for the less fortunate children in our community! I’m digging through my closets… will you please donate, too?
