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: email@example.com or call 763-425-7524, Ext. 1
If you don't have a coat to donate, but you would still like to help kids in need, please use the donate button below to help the cause! A $25 donation will purchase 1 new coat. All donations will go to purchasing new coats for kids in need for 2017 Coats For Kids drive.
