Coats for Kids
Beginning in November, coats are donated and collected at all Porterís Cleaners locations. Porterís then makes necessary repairs, cleans the coats and distributes them to the kids. The first distribution is a collective effort between Porterís, Goodwill and the teachers of local schools. This event concludes with a ďCoats For KidsĒ distribution on a Saturday in January. It will occur on January 8, 2005 this year.
Through this project, tens of thousands of coats have been donated to those in need.
