BRISTOL, Tenn., September 14, 2017 – King University is now collecting children’s winter coats for the University’s 18th annual “Coats for Kids” Day, which will take place on Saturday, Oct. 28.
“Coats for Kids has been a great tradition at King University for 17 years,” says
Julie McReynolds, assistant dean for student engagement at King. “Each year the community
support for this event grows. Last year, we gave away 303 coats. We hope everyone
will help ensure the kids in our community all have a warm coat for this coming winter
Donated children’s coats may be dropped off at King University at either the Administration
Building or Maclellan Hall on the main campus in Bristol. Coats may also be dropped
off at any Bristol, Tenn., or Bristol, Va., elementary school, YMCA, YWCA, or Craig’s
Cleaners, located on the Volunteer Parkway in Bristol, Tenn. Coat donation bins will
be in place the week of Sept. 11.
Monetary donations designated for “Coats for Kids” are accepted at King University’s
Administration Building located on the main campus. The monetary donations are used
to purchase new coats for the event.
“The Bristol community is always so generous to donate coats for Coats for Kids, and
our students, faculty, and staff at King are also generous with their time in volunteering,”
said McReynolds. “It would not be possible to make this event happen with the support
of many people. We are expanding our distribution day event and adding a Fall Festival
that will be sponsored by our Residence Life staff. We hope many people will be able
to enjoy this day and have a new warm coat.”
Coats may be dropped off at one of the designated locations in Bristol TN/VA by Oct.
13. Contact Julie McReynolds at 423.652.6310 or email@example.com for additional information on the Coats for Kids project.
