[Washington, IL] – For the fifth consecutive year, the Prairie Home Alliance has joined forces with the Salvation Army for the Coats for Kids campaign. From now until December 6th, we invite you to stop by our showroom to drop off any new or used coats in children’s and young adult sizes. Since the program started, central IL has donated over 32,500 coats. Which have been cleaned and given out to area children in need. A donation bin will be hosted at the Prairie Home Alliance, located across from ICC off Route 24.
A mass distribution of the coats will begin on Monday, November 4th at The Salvation Army Corps Community Center – located at 2907 W. Nebraska Avenue in Peoria. After the week-long distribution, the coats will be avilable for parents to pick-up when signing up for Christmas assistance at the Salvation Army. For more information, call the Salvation Army at 309-655-7272.
