Bowling Green Junior Woman's Club's 30th annual Coats For Kids Drive



The Bowling Green Junior Woman’s Club along with The Bowling Green Police Department and Warren County Sheriff’s Office have begun the 30th Annual Coats for Kids Drive! The event is held between October 1st and December 1st and has become a well-known tradition in Warren County. During the collection, they work directly with local Warren County and Bowling Green city schools to ensure that every student has a warm coat for the winter season.

Coat donation opportunities will include the annual Cram the Cruiser event in front of The Bowling Green Police Department and at Greenwood Mall from October 1-December 1. Coat donations may also be made at Chaney’s Dairy Barn and Honeybaked Ham.

Express Laundry will continue their partnership to launder all gently used coats collected from the community before distributing to the family resource coordinators at each school. Any remaining coats left over after the needs of our local schools are met, will be distributed to local centers and agencies in the community.

Acorn Storage will continue their partnership in providing storage for all new and clean coats. Here, we can keep coats sorted allowing us to distribute coats to schools and agencies in a very efficient manner.  

Additional questions regarding Coats For Kids sponsorships, coat donations, monetary donations or events, can be directed to the Bowling Green Junior Woman’s Club at [email protected] or www.facebook.com/coatsforkidsbg.
