Providing Coats To Kids In Need

Each year there are children without adequate winter protection. Pilgrim 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 coats at any of the 25 Pilgrim Dry Cleaners and Launderers locations throughout the Twin Cities metro area. 

Our 2017 Coats For Kids campaign runs from September 18th to October 14th. Our goal is to collect 10,000 coats every year to help kids in our local community. Thank you to our sponsors: KARE 11, The Minnesota Sun Newspaper, Subway Restaurants, and WCCO Radio, 830AM who help make this possible. If you're interested in becoming a sponsor, or setting up a collection at your business or school, please email: or call 763-425-7524 x1

One visit and I am totally sold. My life is very hectic as I live in one state and work in another. I have one dry cleaner I like but can never get to (in the state I work in) and a whole bunch that I have never liked near our home. Your hours are great, the staff is absolutely wonderful, your cleaning service was top notch, your turn around was fantastic and your pickup and delivery solves my only issue with the extra 3 miles I was going to have to drive. We are looking forward to a very devoted relationship with your store. I love working with companies that understand that a pleasant experience counts as much as a quality product. You clearly deliver both.
