8News, Puritan Cleaners are ‘Calling all Coats’ to help local kids keep warm

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — 8News is proud to once again partner with Puritan Cleaners to keep local kids warm this winter.

The Coats for Kids program happens every November at Puritan Cleaners.


How can you help? Donate your coats at any of the 14 Puritan cleaner locations where you live. The greatest need is for kids coats, but any size is appreciated.

Puritan cleaners along with the Salvation army will donate them to someone in need this winter.

If you’re a business, you can encourage your employees to donate their coats, too.


There are also Coats for kids flyers available online that you can print and post in your office. If you’re a club or a school, you can organize your own Coats for kids coat drive.

Puritan cleaners will even come pick up your gently used coats!
