Project Overview & History:

Coats for Kids is a community-wide event that the club has supported for more than 20 years! Club members join forces to find coats for local kids in need. Coat donation bins are placed in local businesses in and around Eugene and Springfield in October each fall. The coats are then taken to several local dry cleaners who donate their services to clean them! After the coats have been cleaned, Club members sort and distribute them to local organizations that help support the needs of underprivileged children. The club’s goal is to collect and distribute over 2,600 coats in our community! Thank you to those who help make that possible!
