Coats for Kids Safety Guidelines

We are operating in accordance with CDC guidance to implement safety protocols, including the procedures listed below.  Additional information about protocols will be published closer to the event, but please know that the CFK Committee and JLA leadership makes the safety of our members, community volunteers, and coat recipients a high priority.

Current Safety Protocols:

  • Limited volunteer capacity during shifts in line with CDC guidance. 
  • Social distancing, implemented by limiting volunteers per sorting area to 2.
  • Hand sanitizing and washing stations.
  • Masks required at all times.
  • Gloves provided/optional.
  • Health questionnaire before entry.
  • Temperature checks with contactless thermometers. 

The sorting area is outdoors in a covered garage.  Should you feel comfortable volunteering, we look forward to your support.  There is also always the opportunity to donate a new or gently-used coat, or even host a coat drive if that’s a more suitable alternative for you this year.

  • Organize a Coat Drive
      • Group/Business: Friends, neighborhoods, faith-based organizations, small or large businesses can unite to collect coats. Groups that collect the most coats will be recognized on 98.1 KVET and awarded a plaque.  
      • School: In the spirit of kids helping kids, we invite area schools to participate in the COATS FOR KIDS School Drive competition. Awards will be given to the high school, middle school, elementary school, and charter or private school that collects the most coats during the drive.
  • Donate a New or Gently Used Coat: Drop off a new or gently-used coat at any Jack Brown Cleaners between Monday, November 9, 2020 and Monday, December 9, 2020.
