The Children’s Charities Foundation has distributed new winter coats to more than 6,500 children from (30) thirty local charities and community organizations in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Charities were selected in advance so that each child will receive an appropriate size coat. Money to purchase the coats are raised at the Children’s Charities Foundation gala and the BB&T Classic basketball tournament.
If you would like to host a community service project to raise funds to purchase coats for children in the area please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The kid's coat giveaway is in its third year and is one of hundreds of projects the Foundation has funded that offers help to at risk and disadvantage youth in DC, Maryland and Virginia. Along with CCF, the D.C. Children's Trust Fund was instrumental in identifying local organizations serving children in need of a suitable winter coat.
