With record cold temps last winter and more of the same expected this winter, we discovered a special nonprofit that is working to ensure all children in the area have a warm coat for the cold winter weather. The organization is Jacqueline Kennedy’s Coats for Kids and was founded by a caring young student who wishes to make a difference in the community.
The nonprofit’s goal for 2021 is to collect 1,000 new and gently used coats. As part of our holiday coat drive, we sent the message out to clients and friends alike, and as always, they delivered. With their help, we collected over 100 new and gently used children’s coats.
Inspired during a normal drive to school on a cold day, Jacqueline Kennedy saw a child walking without a coat. Moved by the scene, she wanted to offer her own coat. Unfortunately the child was much older so it wasn’t the right fit but that day, a promise was made that she would do something special to get coats to kids who have none.
As part of the GWA Gives© program, we support small nonprofits who share our mission of giving back to the communities in which we live, work, and play.
As always, thank you for your generosity! Together we can help kids stay warm this winter.
