Kidz-N-Coats exists to provide NEW Winter coats to children in need. Every year South Dakota receives winter weather for 4-6 months, often enduring large amounts of snow, sub zero temperatures and freezing rain. Have you ever stopped to think about kids in the area who may not have a winter coat?
Our current economy has left many families in need. In Sioux Falls along, we have ten Title I schools in which over 60% of the students are on free or reduced income lunches. Many of these students come to school without winter coats, hats, or gloves. Sioux Falls is also home to a large influx of refuges, fleeing bad political, social, and economic conditions. Although they are now safe, the challenges of starting over can be overwhelming!
Our goal is to provide a helping hand. The need is great and immediate!
Why purchase NEW Winter Coats you might ask? A child’s self esteem is ever developing and in need of nurturing. We feel that giving a child a NEW coat will boost self esteem and give each child a sense of pride and well being. We want them to know that we care to give the very best!
