BRISTOL, Tenn., Oct. 19, 2015 – King University will be providing children’s winter coats for the University’s 16th
annual “Coats for Kids” Day, which will take place on Saturday, Oct. 24 in Kline Gym
on King’s main campus in Bristol, Tenn.
“Over the past 15 years the Bristol community has come together, showing immense support
of ‘Coats for Kids,’” said Julie McReynolds, assistant dean for student engagement
at King. “We’ve been overjoyed at the amount of support we have received this year.
We anticipate an increase in the number of coats will be able to provide this year.
Our hope is that every child in our region who needs a coat – has one.”
Donated children’s coats may still be dropped off at King University at either the
Administration Building or Maclellan Hall on the main campus in Bristol, Tenn., or
at Craig’s Cleaners located at 1375 Volunteer Parkway #12 Bristol, Tenn., though Thursday,
Oct. 22. Monetary donations designated for “Coats for Kids” will be accepted at King
University’s Administration Building located on the main campus.
“We are grateful so many community members and organizations are supporting our students’
service project. Together, we are ensuring children in our community have the coats,
scarves, and gloves they need to stay warm this winter,” said McReynolds.
King University student volunteers will greet families and help youth select winter
coats in Kline Gym Saturday, Oct. 24 from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. The Education
Department’s student organization, STEA-KE (Student Tennessee Education Association
