Coats for Kids
Peerless Cleaners, along with the Volunteer Center@RSVP, and Kroger Food and Pharmacy has another successful year. The need keeps increasing every year. We had several monetary donations this year and it helped us buy coats in the sizes we needed most.
All the coats were cleaned at Peerless Cleaners and then delivered to the Volunteer Center@RSVP. They are distributed throughout the area through schools and non-profit agencies in Allen, LaGrange, Noble and Wells counties, as well as to individual families who express a need.
Without your help and caring for families in need, this program would not be the success that it has been for several years. Thanks to each and everyone who has donated a coat to help a child or family stay warm.
Our 2015 coat drive was another huge success for us. We collected over 4200 coats along with hats, mittens and scaves. It was such a joy to see the kids receive their coats, gloves, and hats.
Kerlins Coat Drive (Kosciusko County)
Peerless Cleaners has teamed up with Kerlin Motor Company in Kosciusko County for their Combined Community Services Coat Drive. We have cleaned over 12,000 coats for this annual event that takes place every year in the month of October. This year we collected over 1300 coats for the Kosciusko county.
