News 3, Klinke Cleaners to collect Koats for Kids

WISC-TV3, Klinke Cleaners, the Community Action Coalition and Magic 98 (98.1 FM) are proud to team up, once again, for the 33rd annual Koats for Kids campaign.

The project collects gently used outerwear and winter gear to be distributed to individuals in need.

When: Monday, Sept. 10 – Saturday, Oct. 6

Where: Any Dane County Klinke Cleaners location

What: Donate gently used coats, gloves, hats, mittens, scarves and snow pants

All donated outerwear will be cleaned by Klinke Cleaners and distributed to the community by Community Action Coalition for South Central Wisconsin.

For the past 33 years, area residents, school children and businesses have joined together to donate more 316,948 coats to individuals and families in need. Let’s continue the tradition this year! If you hold a collection, send us an email so we can share photos of your donations.

Tune in to News 3 This Morning, News 3 at 6 p.m. and Magic 98 for your daily coat count.
