Ziker Cleaners collecting "Coats For Kids"

Posted:

 

With cold weather arriving in the area, a reminder that their are kids out there who don't have a warm coat.

Ziker Cleaners kicked off collections on Friday for their "Coats For Kids" drive. This is the 27th year for the drive. During that time, Ziker has collected, cleaned and given out over 245,000 gently used or new coats to those in need in our area.

Jennifer Probst with Ziker Cleaners says she can see the need with kids at her children's school. "They grow quickly, they're expensive, there are so many needs your child has, that if there is one thing we can soften, than that's what we're going to do," said Probst.

If you want to help out, just take your coat to one of Ziker's 8 locations in South Bend, Mishawaka, Granger or Elkhart.

 

The greatest need is for child size machine washable coats that can be easily maintained after they are distributed, but winter coats of any type and size are welcome.
