We need your help to send new winter coats to children in need in the Shenandoah Valley There are so many families that can't afford to provide their children with a new coat. A warm coat helps a child attend school on even the coldest winter days with pride and ready to learn. A brand new jacket is sometimes all it takes to ensure that they will not only be safe but that they will fit in with their peers. It truly helps build self-esteem!
- Just $15 can get a local child a NEW coat.
- When children receive a NEW coat, they feel valued by you. It’s more special than receiving a used or hand-me-down coat.
- School attendance declines in the winter. Receiving a NEW winter coat empowers children to attend school regularly and participate in outdoor play on cold winter days.
- Regular attendance is important so kids have access to nutritious meals and a well-rounded education.
- Approximately 16.1 million children are living in poverty - even if we can only reach a small percentage, we’re still making a difference in those children’s lives.
