Coats For Kids collection set for Oct. 28 game

Posted Oct 23, 2012

The Packers’ annual Coats for Kids collection will take place Sunday, Oct. 28, at Lambeau Field prior to the Green Bay Packers-Jacksonville Jaguars noon game. Fans attending the game will have the opportunity to donate new and gently used coats for distribution to needy children through area Salvation Army units.

Cash donations will be accepted as well.

The Salvation Army will be collecting coats and cash donations in the parking lot and at each of Lambeau Field’s gates beginning at 8 a.m.

The Salvation Army, Fox 11, Cumulus Broadcasting and several area cleaners – Lindeman’s Cleaning, Royal Cleaners and Martinizing Dry Cleaning Service – are again leading the seasonal effort to collect coats. Coats can be dropped off at the participating cleaners, in addition to being brought to Sunday’s game.

Collections at the game will cease at kickoff and the number of coats collected will be announced during the second half of the game.

Last year, the Coats for Kids collection garnered 155 coats and $10,600 in cash donations prior to the Packers-Saints season opener.
