Coats For Kids

Tub Photo Coats for Kids 2017

For the 15th consecutive year, the law firm of Manuel & Thompson and WJHG are proud to sponsor their Coats for Kids drive. This annual event collects new and gently used coats for distribution to children in need of warm coats for the winter months. This year, there are over 40 drop off locations across Bay County.

Coats for Kids has become a community event. Attorney Waylon Thompson said of the drive, “We especially enjoy partnering with the teachers and administrators to ensure that we get the coats directly in the hands of the kids who want and need one.” Last year, a record 1,250 coats were requested by 30 miscellaneous schools and charities. 1,100 coats were collected and combined with many generous monetary donations, the remaining coats were purchased and all orders were filled!

Collection has already begun and continues through October 28th. We need your help in getting the word out as each year the need grows on our community.

The distribution of coats will be October 16th through November 10th.
