The Cleveland Cavaliers are assisting the efforts of “Coats for Kids”, asking fans to help support this year’s campaign. We are asking all fans to donate a gently worn or new winter coat at the Cavs game on Wednesday, November 1st at the game against the Pacers and on Sunday, November 5th at the game against the Hawks. By donating a coat, you will help keep kids of Northeast Ohio warm this fall and winter.
2017 marks the 36th anniversary of Coats for Kids – Cleveland, which was started in 1981 by local radio station employees when they realized that a large number of children were missing school in the winter because they did not have warm coats. That November, Coats for Kids – Cleveland was founded and the radio station began soliciting donations of like-new, gently worn coats and cash donations to purchase new coats.
