The Kinship Partners 30th annual Coats for Kids drive is nearing an end, with the coat distribution set for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 29 at Westgate Mall in Baxter.

There is still time to donate a gently used or new coat by dropping it off at Crystal Cleaners or another drop-off location by Monday. Additional locations include Trinity Lutheran Church, Brainerd; First Congregational Church, Brainerd; Pequot Lakes Baptist Church, Stepping Stones Child Care, Brainerd or BN Credit Union, Brainerd.

On the distribution day, from 9-11 a.m., children must be present to ensure proper fit and be accompanied by a parent, guardian or their adult Kinship Partner. One coat per person plus other winter outerwear will be given away while supplies last. There are no criteria beyond need for a child to receive a winter coat.

If you are unable to bring your child between 9-11 a.m., come anytime after 11 a.m. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. children do not need to be present to pick up a coat or other winter outerwear.

Coats for Kids is sponsored by Kinship Partners, Hubbard Broadcasting, Crystal Cleaners and the Westgate Mall. Call Sandi at Kinship Partners at 218-454-8011 for more information on Coats for Kids.
