The North Royalton High School football team will coordinate the 10th Annual Coats for Kids Stuff the Bus event on Saturday, November 23 from 9am – 2pm. The team is encouraging North Royalton residents, friends and neighbors to bring new or like-new winter coats and cash donations to the North Royalton Board of Education parking lot at 6579 Royalton Road.

The players will carry on the decade-long tradition of “stuffing” a North Royalton school bus with coats which will be transferred to Coats for Kids and redistributed to children in need in northeast Ohio.

Stuff the Bus will be a “drive and drop” operation, so coat and cash donors do not have to leave their vehicle to make a donation. Football players and their parents will be on hand to accept them.

Coats for Kids appreciates donations of new or like-new winter coats in all sizes, as some children wear adult-sized coats.

Several local businesses have agreed to be food sponsors for this year’s event. Zeppe’s Pizza in North Royalton will again deliver sheet pizzas for volunteers on Saturday afternoon. Becker’s Donuts, also in North Royalton, will provide donuts for the volunteers’ breakfast.

The City of North Royalton is also helping to publicize the event.
