Coats for Kids – Help Keep Nashville’s Children Warm

The temperatures are dropping and it’s finally beginning to feel like winter. For most of us, that means looking forward to a snow day or two for sledding and snowmen. But, for lots of kids, it means cold mornings waiting for the school bus without a coat or winter gear to keep warm. Sadly, 72% of children that attend Metro Nashville Public Schools live in some level of poverty.

Hands On Nashville’s Youth Volunteer Corps is on a mission to help through their Coats for Kids coat drive. Do you have a gently worn or new coat you could donate to keep a child warm this winter? The group is collecting for both youth and teens so all sizes are accepted and needed. Drop off your donation at one of the following Metro Regional Community Centers today through January 15th, 2016:

The coats will be sorted by size and delivered to MNPS who will distribute them based on need. See the Coats for Kids flyer or contact Hands On Nashville for questions or more information.
