Starting October 14, 2013, Anton’s Cleaners is kicking off its 19th annual "Coats for Kids" winter coat drive and will run through January 11, 2014. Fair & Yeager Insurance Agency and Long Term Solutions of Natick, Mass. are on board as Corporate Collection Partners for the program.
Anton’s Cleaners "Coats for Kids" collection has one simple goal - to help individuals who otherwise wouldn’t be able to keep themselves and their families warm. "Coats for Kids" is New England’s largest coat drive, collecting over 856,000 coats since the program began.
Participating companies and organizations collect good quality, warm winter coats and then bring them to any of Anton’s Cleaners’ 42 locations (including the Natick store located at 6 South St.) or one of the five Jordan’s Furniture stores. Once collected and cleaned, coats are distributed free of charge through the Distribution Partner network.
According to Arthur C. Anton Jr., COO of Anton’s Cleaners, “'Coats for Kids' offers an incredible opportunity for local businesses to get involved in an activity that benefits those in need. Anton’s Cleaners is always on the lookout for ways to collaborate with local businesses and organizations to make winter a little warmer for children, teens and adults throughout Eastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire.”
Last year’s drive collected 52,000 coats, with Anton’s donating over $10M in cleaning services since the program’s inception. Promotional partners for the 2013-2014 "Coats for Kids" collection include Jordan’s Furniture, KISS 108, Wicked Local, Fox 25 and Jam’n 94.5.
