The cold Michigan weather is around the corner and there are children in our community in need of a warm winter coat.

Do-Care Family Enrichment Center, a program of Do-All, Inc., is again coordinating the Coats for Kids program in Bay County. While nearly 1,200 children received coats in 2011, more than 1,400 children have indicated a need for coats this year.

"Many local families are struggling to make ends meet," according to Kristal Corrion, Program Manager. "They are having a difficult time paying their rent and utilities, much less providing warm winter coats for their children."

Coats are needed in all sizes from 3T through adult sizes for older teens, but the sizes in greatest demand are for sizes 6 through 14 for both boys and girls. "Warm winter coats are a necessity for children, as they are required to go outside for recess every day and they need to have a winter coat to keep them warm," said Corrion.

Donations of new and gently-used coats are accepted for the program at Do-Care Family Enrichment Center, 711 Ninth St. and the Cat's Meow Thrift Store in Essexville (directly behind McDonald's).

Other coat drop locations include all branches of the Bay County Library System, Bay City Mall - Target wing, Thumb National Bank branches, Financial Edge Credit Union branches and Independent Bank branches.

Monetary donations to help purchase coats may be mailed to Do-All, Inc., 1400 S. Lincoln, Bay City, MI 48708.

If you have questions about this program or would like more information, please contact Kristal Corrion at 989-894-0764.
