How we help empower youth

Coats for Kids
We work with RUSD to provide school age children warm coats, hats, gloves, and scarves.  Parents should request a coat through their school social worker.  We will provide the coats to the Social Worker for distribution.  Children that are not school age can receive a coat directly from our office.  Please call (262) 632-3147 ext. 113 to request a coat. 

Kids Backpack Program
We provide sacks of food to RUSD students with extreme situations that require additional nutrition.  Students have been identified by the school's social worker. We provide close to 481 bags a week that contain two entrée items, two breakfast items, and two snack items. 

Healthy Kids Diner
Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to school-age children, The Racine Salvation Army Healthy Kid's Diner began in May 2019 serving dinner meals to school age children. Many children in our community lack the opportunity to have a hot healthy dinner meal, especially during summer when free and reduced-priced school lunches are unavailable.

This program helps to fulfil the need for nutrition when school lunches are not available and during the school year when many parents struggle to provide an evening meal. Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the goal of this program and the driving force behind its success.

Hours and Locations:

  • Monday - Friday:
    • 4:00 p.m. -  4:20 p.m. Geneva St. COP House, 1140 Geneva St., Racine
