Coats For Kids

CELEBRATING 28 YEARS!
Each year the number of children without adequate winter protection increases. Now you can help!

Donate your new and gently-used coats at any of the 25 Pilgrim Cleaners throughout the Twin Cities metro area.

The 2013 Coats For Kids campaign was September 16 to October 11 . Our goal was 10,000 coats, and we collected nearly 8,000!

Help us thank this year’s sponsors: KARE 11, The Minnesota Sun Newspaper, Subway Restaurants, and WCCO Radio, 830AM.

HISTORY
In 1986, Don Rosen, Founder and former President of Pilgrim Cleaners, created the Coats for Kids program. Since then, we have collected and cleaned more than 377,000 coats to help keep children warm.
