Providing Coats To Kids In Need

Each year there are children without adequate winter protection. Pilgrim Dry Cleaners Coats for Kids drive was founded in 1986 to ensure that local community children in need would have access to warm coats each winter. From mid-September to mid-October every year we encourage you to donate your new and gently-used children & adult coats at any of the 25 Pilgrim Dry Cleaners locations throughout the Twin Cities metro area.

Last year our goal was to collect 10,000 coats and we came very close, collecting 9,400 coats! Help us reach our goal to collect 10,000 coats for our 2017 Coats For Kids drive! Thank you to our sponsors: KARE 11, The Minnesota Sun Newspaper, Subway Restaurants, and WCCO Radio, 830AM. If you're interested in becoming a sponsor of our Coats For Kids drive, or setting up a collection at your business, school, church, or organization; please email: or call 763-425-7524, Ext. 1
