Coats for Kids drive kicks off

Comedian George Wallace takes a moment to add a jacket to the Coats for Kids collection box Sept. 20. Residents will find Coats for Kids boxes at Albertsons stores and are asked to donate children’s gently used coats, sweaters, sweatshirts and adult coats. Aramark Uniform will pick up the coats and drop them off at Al Phillips the Cleaner, which has cleaned all of the coats free for the past 13 years. Coats are then distributed to children in need through The Salvation Army’s Family Services. Anyone who donates a coat will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for one of 14 pairs of free tickets to see George Wallace. Entry forms are available Albertsons service desks. The drawing is set to take place after the conclusion of the coat drive, which runs through Nov. 3. (Special to View)
