Northwest Ohio Middle School Student Travels to Cleveland to Donate Coats

Anthony Wayne student

Kudos to this wonderful middle school student who collected coats for us as part of his community service project!

This 7th grader and his family live in Northwest Ohio but came all the way back to the Cleveland area to drop off coats at Great Northern Mall. His family is originally from here and travels back frequently.

His mom fondly remembers volunteering for Coats for Kids as a high school student.

Thanks so much to this family for quite literally going the extra mile so local kids can have warm winter coats!

Please keep in mind that Coats for Kids coat collection bins will remain in area malls until January 9.

Beachwood Sophomore Collects 100+ coats!

We’re ringing in the New Year, but looking back with gratitude on the generosity of our supporters in 2017.

The young lady pictured below, Lena Leland, a sophomore at Beachwood High School, initiated a coat drive for us and collected more than 100 coats!

She came up with the idea for the project herself, created a flyer for neighborhood distribution, and used social media to promote her drive to more families. Afterward, she devoted two weekends to drive around to collect coats, making 15 stops alone on the last day.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Just In Time Staffing, Buyers Products’ Contribution Provides Coats for Entire Madison School

A surprise donation of a combined $15,000 from Mentor-based Just In Time Staffing and Buyers Products Company made this holiday season much warmer for the several hundred children who attend North Elementary School in Madison.

Employees of both companies, along with Coats for Kids representatives, were at the school on Friday, Dec. 22 for a pre-holiday break coat distribution event that resulted in every student at the school receiving a brand new, warm winter coat.

“Our companies and employees wanted to do something to give back during this season of giving,” said Lisa Donato, vice president of human resources, Just In Time Staffing. “We discussed different organizations we might like to work with, and decided on Coats for Kids because they are a small, local organization that is doing good right here in northeast Ohio, where we felt our donation could make a significant impact.”

Coats for Kids worked with the companies to identify a school where the majority of children enrolled participate in the federal free or reduced lunch program. With Just in Time Staffing and Buyers Products based in Mentor, the hope was to give back to a school in Lake County, and North Elementary School in Madison was deemed the perfect fit.
