IMPORTANT: COATS FOR KIDS BENEFIT SHOW UPDATE

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on northeast Ohio. Our primary concern is the health and safety of all Coats for Kids supporters and donors, our staff and the families who benefit from our services. We sincerely hope the May 29 & 30 Coats for Kids benefit shows will take place as planned but realize it’s very possible they will not.

At this time, no charges have been processed for tickets that were ordered by those who called or texted in, then confirmed purchase details with a Coats for Kids representative.

We will continue to assess the situation and share updated information as we have it available on the Triv Show, through social media and on the Coats for Kids website.

Thank you for your support of Coats for Kids, and your patience.

Howard Hanna Wadsworth Donates 700+ Coats

Kudos to the Howard Hanna Real Estate Wadsworth Office!

At the Ohio Howard Hanna Real Estate Services Award Ceremony February 19 in Cleveland, the Wadsworth team received special recognition for its outstanding efforts in coat collection for Coats for Kids this past fall and early winter.

We are extremely grateful to the Wadsworth team for gathering more than 700 new and gently worn winter coats — the largest amount of coats collected among Howard Hanna offices in northeast Ohio. We are so fortunate to have Howard Hanna as our collection partner for 22 years!

Hudson High Senior Collects 560 Coats

Way to go, Peyton Koscho! Peyton, a senior at Hudson High School, collected 560 coats (70 of them brand-new) this fall and early winter and donated them to us. Peyton is a selfless young man as he undertook the coat collection not because he was required to, but just to help out the kids of Northeast Ohio. Thanks again, Peyton.

Altar’d State Gives Back & Coats for Kids Benefits

Coats for Kids recently received a fantastically big-hearted post-holiday present from the Altar’d State Crocker Park and Beachwood stores. They contributed a grand total of more than $6,800 from their MissionMonday initiative that ended just before Christmas. On Mondays during this fall and early winter, Altar’d State donated 10% of all sales to us. They also gave customers who donated a coat the chance to win some great prizes.

In addition to their generous donation, Altar’d State employees helped us distribute coats in November to students at Hannah Gibbons Elementary School in Cleveland.
