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.
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.
Thank you to the Winking Lizard Tavern & 2019 Tour of Beer finishers for their $3,350 donation at the tour party in January. Over the past 10 years, the Winking Lizard has donated nearly $55,000 to Coats for Kids on behalf of tour finishers who choose not to receive their tour jacket. Thank you!
