Coats for Kids has been feeling the love from the community for the last 38 years, but especially after the February 3 fire that destroyed our warehouse.
Where would be without Mike Trivisonno, Carmen Angelo and Seth Williams, of The Mike Trivisonno Show and Newsradio WTAM 1100? They have done so much to support Coats for Kids not only since the fire and hosting the Fill the Truck and benefit shows, but always. We are indebted to all of them.
Our thanks go to Blue Canyon Kitchen & Tavern for collecting items to help Fill the Truck and donating Blue Canyon gift cards for Triv to give away during the benefit shows.
You contributed many items to help with warehouse operations, ranging from store gift cards to buckets to paper to trash bags, envelopes, pens and markers to two printers donated by Rodney Simon of Simcon Homes.
Presenting Sponsors of Triv’s All In Benefit Shows
The Coats for Kids warehouse was ravaged by fire in February. Triv from The Mike Trivisonno Show on WTAM 1100 and many businesses and performers are stepping up to the plate to help us get back on our feet.
Triv and company will broadcast live from noon until 10 pm on Thursday, June 27 from the Hilton Garden Inn in Twinsburg. During the 10-hour broadcast, Triv is challenging the community to Fill the Truck with the following items:
COATS FOR KIDS – FILL THE TRUCK – ITEMS NEEDED
WINTER COATS – ALL SIZES, INFANT TO ADULT (NEW/GENTLY WORN!)
GIFT CARDS (DISCOUNT DRUG MART, WALMART/SAM’S CLUB)
RUBBER GLOVES (DISPOSABLE, SIZES S, M, L, XL)
LEGAL PADS (8.5 X 11”)
PENS (BLUE, BLACK)
The truck, provided by Berea Moving and Storage, will be in place through the weekend at the hotel. If you are unable to drop by on Thursday, you may drop off items through 7:00 p.m. Saturday, June 29.
Time for a haircut! Go to Ledgewood Barber Shop in Strongsville until June 10 & their barbers will donate a portion of the cost of every haircut to Coats for Kids. Ledgewood Barber Shop is located at 17100 Royalton Road in Strongsville (in the same plaza as Triv’s).
A generous donation from The Figgie Foundation and Clark-Reliance Corporation will make this winter much warmer for the several hundred children who attend Harrison Elementary School in Lakewood.
The school coat distribution in early November was sponsored by The Figgie Foundation and Clark-Reliance Corporation. Local employees of Altar’d State and iHeartMedia Cleveland, along with Coats for Kids representatives, were at the school for a two-day coat distribution that resulted in every student at the school receiving a brand new, warm winter coat.
Coats for Kids worked with The Figgie Foundation and Clark-Reliance to identify a school in Lakewood where the majority of children are economically disadvantaged. The companies chose Lakewood to honor the Figgie family legacy. The late Matthew Figgie often reminisced about his childhood in Lakewood and remembered his dear parents, both of whom were Lakewood High School alumni.
