Offering Warmth on MLK Day
In honor of MLK Day of Service, Education Alliance AmeriCorps held a coat drive called Coats4Kids from January 3-January 17, 2022. During this time, drop-off locations were available for people to donate any winter gear. The Coats4Kids drive is part of a national drive, through One Warm Coat, that is being hosted by Education Alliance AmeriCorps.
In 2022, Coats4Kids' donation goal was to collect at least 1000 articles of winter clothing to help West Virginia families stay warm. Education Alliance AmeriCorps surpassed that goal with a total of 2,386 articles of winter clothing donated.
