Coats For Kids


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 2016 Coats For Kids campaign ran from September 19th to October 14th. Our goal was to collect 10,000 coats and we almost met our goal, collecting 9,400 coats this year! 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 for next years 2017 Coats For Kids drive, or setting up a collection at your business or school, please email: or call 763-425-7524, Ext. 1

I appreciate your pick up and delivery service here in Blaine. Your delivery man was so polite and nice. I am a 78 year old woman who no longer drives. So pick up and delivery is important to me. My girls have been satisfied customers of Pilgrims for many years.
