Town of Clarkstown Sponsors 22nd Annual Coats for Kids Program

 

Clarkstown Supervisor Alexander J. Gromack announced the start of the 22nd Annual Coats for Kids Program in Rockland County.  The program runs from now until Friday, December 23.  The long-running service provides coats for people in the community who might not otherwise be able to buy a warm winter coat.

 

“If you have an extra coat in your closet, please join me in making this holiday season a little brighter and a great deal warmer for our neighbors,” said Supervisor Gromack.  “Donors may bring coats that are gently worn 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 The Byne Group who designed the posters free of charge; New Born Printing who printed the posters free of charge; the Florian Association of Rockland County who are a group of retired FDNY members living in Rockland County; Tutor Time Child Care Learning Centers; and 100.7 WHUD Radio. 

 

“With the help and generosity of the people of Rockland, I am certain that this very worthwhile program will once again be a huge success,” added Supervisor Gromack.

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