During the winter season, wearing protective outer layers can make all the difference in the world for those who don’t have coats for the cold.
The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit is helping those most in need in a partnership with The MolinaCares Accord to provide 2,000 winter coats to children and adults in the community this Saturday.
Coats, ranging in sizes from 12 months to 5X, will be distributed via drive-through while supplies last. Over 2,000 coats will be available while supplies last; part of Coats for Kids initiative. During the event, The Salvation Army Bed & Bread truck will be on-site to provide hot chocolate. Santa and his elves will also deliver candy bags and holiday cheer to those attending.
Pre-registration is not required and coats will be handed out on a first come, first serve basis until supplies run out.
The coat event will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (or until supplies run out) Saturday, Dec. 18 at The Salvation Army Conner Creek Corps Community Center, 3000 Conner Street in Detroit.
