Coats For Kids 2016 Campaign
“Last year with the help of five local schools our Model team picked up, cleaned and donated 4,500 coats to help keep area kids warm. This year with eight area schools involved and with the additional help of the University of Pittsburgh’s athletic department we hope to collect, clean and deliver 10,000 clean coats to help area kids that are in need of staying warm this winter. We need to teach our kids how to lead with love and help one another. I hope in some small way this program can continue to do just that.” stated President of Model Cleaners, Dan LaCarte.
If you would like to donate to this year’s Model Cleaners Coats For Kids Campaign, please take your gently used or new coats to any of our 14 Model Cleaners store locations. You can find all of our store locations here
