With colder weather just around the corner, it’s time to make sure all Muscatine children have coats to keep warm!

The United Way of Muscatine and Community Actions have teamed up together for a Coats for Kids Coat Drive! The drive kicks off this Sunday Sep 9 and continue through Saturday Sep 15.

Slightly used or new coats for infants through high school students are needed! Whether you want to donate, volunteer or host your own coat drive, contact Nichole at United Way at (563) 263-5963 or nichole@unitedwaymuscatine.org.

This project is part of the 9/11 Day of Action Project. Visit https://www.911day.org/ for more information.

Help keep the kids warm this winter!
