SECC Has Launched Annual Coats for Kids Event

SECC has launched Coats for Kids again this year and we are currently collecting jackets and other winter accessories.

Help a child stay warm this winter. SECC is accepting donations for the annual SECC Coats for Kids event. Gently used spring and winter coats, boots, snow pants and winter accessories (hats, gloves, mittens, scarves, etc.) are welcome in all sizes, infant to adult.

The program aims to help serve children in the Leamington, Kingsville and Wheatley area who otherwise would not have access to warm winter clothing. In 2020, SECC collected over 300 coats and distributed over 200 and in 2019, SECC collected over 500 jackets and winter accessories.

“There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a child walk away with a coat they love and knowing that coat will keep them warm so they can enjoy the winter season,” said Katie Ouellette, Volunteer Services & Community Relations at SECC.

“SECC is proud to offer the Coats for Kids program year after year. Despite any challenges COVID-19 may present, this program is needed in our community.”

SECC will be accepting donations from now to October 31.

Call the Leamington office at 519-326-8629 to arrange a drop-off time or to find out more information.
