Annual Christmas Basket Drive

This is a combined effort with the Northeast Community Fund and is supported by hundreds of churches, businesses and groups throughout the community.  The drive provides food and gifts to over 300 households each holiday season.

Coats for Kids!

This annual coat drive teams up with local clothing rooms to provide coats for children.  Area dry cleaners serve as drop off sites and make sure each coat is cleaned; local businesses serve as drop off sites;  and schools and businesses also participate in this project, as do all of the individuals who donate coats.  WAND-TV is the co-sponsor.  This coat drive began in 1992 and has distributed more than 69,000 coats through the program.

2018 Coats for Kids drive will begin October 17 and we will be collecting good, used coats for families in need through November 30.

Participating Cleaners will make sure the coats are clean and fresh and ready for the clothing rooms to distribute. (All addresses Decatur unless noted otherwise.)
