Town of Clarkstown Sponsors 19th Annual Coats for Kids Program


Clarkstown Supervisor Alexander J. Gromack announced the “kick-off” of the 19th Annual Coats for Kids Program in Rockland County.  The program runs from the present date through Friday, December 19, 2008.  The long-running service provides coats for people in the community who might otherwise not be able to buy a warm winter layer.


“I am once again calling on anyone with an extra coat in their closet to join me in making this holiday season a little brighter and a great deal warmer for our neighbors” said Gromack.  “People can bring their coats – in wearable condition – to one of the participating dry cleaners.  They will clean the coats free of charge, and then forward them to one of the distribution agencies located throughout the county.”


The program is being sponsored by the Florian Association of Rockland; The Byne Group; New Born Printing; 100.7 WHUD; and Frank Miller Landscaping.  “With their help and the generosity of the people of Rockland, I am certain that this very worthwhile program will once again be a huge success,” added Supervisor Gromack.     This years’ list of participating dry-cleaners include:

“Many families in Rockland are faced with tough times during the holiday season.  My goal is to provide warmth to as many people as possible.  Many of us have perfectly good coats hanging in our closets that we no longer wear.  Instead of storing them, let someone in need make use of them.  Your worst coat could be someone else’s salvation,” said Gromack.  “It is important to be good neighbors and assist the children and families that need our help the most.”
