Salvation Army launches annual Coats for Kids drive

RAPID CITY, S.D. — As the cold months get closer by the day, the Salvation Army of the Black Hills is again doing its part to make sure kids stay warm.

The army has launched its annual Coats for Kids drive by accepting donations at its headquarters at 405 North Cherry in Rapid City. They accept coats and cash.

Coats for kids helps to make sure school-aged kids have a warm coat to get them through the fall and winter months.

“This is a very important campaign for us. It’s one of the things that gets goods and services directly in to the hands of a child that needs it, and annually we serve about 400 to 500 children through the coats for kids program,” said Salvation Army Special Services Director, Kelsie Moreno.

Coats will be distributed by appointment this Thursday and Friday at the Salvation Army’s location on North Cherry.

To register your child for a coat, call the army at 605-342-0982.
