MEDFORD, Ore. — Every fall since 1990, NewsWatch 12 has helped connect kids in need with warm winter coats through the Coats for Kids campaign, and 2019 is no exception.
Starting Monday, donation barrels will be rolled out at dozens of convenient locations across Southern Oregon. With help from our partners at Windermere, Remax, Southern Oregon Linen and Laundry Center, we'll be collecting and cleaning those coats for distribution to agencies that can deliver them to the children who need them the most.
What can you do to help? If you have a new or gently used coat in a kids size — and remember, this includes teens in middle and high school — just head to a drop-off location and leave it in a barrel! Our partners will be by soon to pick it up.
For a map with each drop-off location and address, just visit the Coats for Kids page on our website.
