The Salvation Army is teaming up with Mr. Rob’s Cleaners again this year to bring warmth to the season by coordinating the annual “Coats for Kids” Drive. In past years, this drive has met the needs of hundreds in our community. Join us as we try to accomplish the same goal in 2018 by dropping off children’s or adult’s used or new coats at Mr. Rob’s Cleaners during the month of October. Donated gloves, hats, and scarves will also be accepted. Mr. Rob’s Cleaners will clean the coats then the Salvation Army will pick them out and begin distributing Coats for Kids vouchers November 1st thru March 31st for families in need.
Coats may be dropped off at any Mr. Rob’s Cleaners location including:
2309 Rogers Ave, Fort Smith
8901 Jenny Lind Road, Fort Smith
3321 S. 74th Street, Fort Smith
1405 Fayetteville Road, Van Buren,
314 West Center Street, Greenwood
Coats may also be donated at the Salvation Army Thrift Store at 32nd & Grand Ave.
If you are in need of a coat, please come to the Salvation Army at 301 N. 6th Street. Coat vouchers will be provided to the members of each family unit Nov. 26 – Mar. 31 while supplies last.
