The annual Coats for Kids collection will take place Sunday, Sept. 13, at Lambeau Field prior to the Packers-Bears 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 in the parking lot beginning at 7 a.m. at the corner of Lombardi Avenue and Oneida Street. Later, beginning at 2 p.m., the Salvation Army also will be stationed at each entry gate to Lambeau Field to accept coat and cash donations.
The Salvation Army 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.
