Winter is here, and over 2000 kids across Dona Ana Country need your help! Coats for Kids is an initiative of US Bank, 101 Gold, Community Action Agency, Comet Cleaners, and D2 Designs sponsor the Coats for Kids program in Las Cruces to help underprivileged children in our area. This is the 25th year of this program, and we have been busy! This is a simple and compassionate project that makes a large impact in our community. We distributed more than 3,000 coats last year, because of the generous donations of new and gently used coats, as well as the cash we received, no child is ever turned away. Over 50,000 coats have been given to needy children in Dona Ana County, since we began this program in 1995!
As we move into the cold winter months, we know you would agree no child in our community should be without a warm winter coat. You can help us by giving a donation to the Coats for Kids program. These funds are used to purchase coats to supplement the used ones we receive. Your generosity will make a difference to a child who is less fortunate. We work closely with the Social Workers and Counselors in the Las Cruces Public Schools, Hatch Public Schools, and the Gadsden School District to help us identify children, birth through the 5th grade, who need a coat.
Please join us in making Southern New Mexico a warm and wonderful place to live and grow for all children. Please check your closets for coats to donate, or mail your cash donation to Coats for Kids at US Bank, 277 East Amador, Las Cruces, NM 88001. We can provide a tax-exempt receipt through our partner, Community Action Agency, if needed.
