Coats & Shoes for Kids
Each fall we reach out to school nurses, secretaries, and teachers in Coos and Curry Counties and ask them to identify K-12 students most in need of a new coat or pair of shoes that year. Selected students receive a voucher to redeem at the Coos Bay Walmart on a specified day, or by way of volunteers who shop for these students after the event. In November 2019, we were able to provide over 370 students with a new coat or pair of shoes!
The need – and the cost of these items – grows each year. You can help! Contact us to volunteer for our next Coats & Shoes voucher redemption day on November 9, or make a donation to support this important program serving youth in need in Coos and Curry Counties.
