Campaign Aims to Provide Coats for Those in Need

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The United Way of Southeastern Utah and the Emery County Community Center have been hard at work on the 2nd Annual Warm Kids Project. This year's campaign, Coins for Coats is designed to raise money to buy coats, hats, and gloves for low-income kids.

Students from Emery High school are organizing the campaign. They have approached local businesses to sponsor the project by offering green coat cutouts, which patrons can purchase for $1.00 each.

"The goal for this year's campaign is to raise enough money to buy new coats for 100 children," states Ryan Hayward, an Emery High student, who is one of the team leaders. "We're also in the middle of a used coat drive so we can help other parents make sure their kids have warm coats this year. The used coats will be given away on Dec. 1, at the Emery County Food Bank from 11 a.m.-1 p.m."

Anyone who has a clean, gently used coat, or other outerwear to donate, can contact United Way at 637-8911, or locally at 381-5410. Volunteers are still needed to help with the coat drive, and getting the coat cutouts to local businesses. Contact Workforce Services if you have a need for a winter coat, 381-4700.
