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 thru their school Social Worker.  We will provide the coats to the Social Worker for distribution.  Children that are not school age can received a coat directly from our office.  Please call 262-632-3147 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 2 Entrees Items, 2 Breakfast items, and 2 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.

"Our program fills a void created when school lunches are not available and during the school year when many times parents aren't able to provide an evening meal," said Major Ken Nicolai, Corps Officer at the Racine Salvation Army. "Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children is the strength of this program."

Hours and Locations:

  • Monday - Friday:
    • 4:30 p.m. - 5 p.m. at Villa St. COP House, 1146 Villa St., Racine 
    • 5:30 p.m. - 6 p.m. at Geneva St. COP House, 1140 Geneva St., Racine

All meals will meet the USDA recommended nutrition allowance for children and will include vegetables and fruits. 

Contact our Social Service office at (262) 632-3147 to learn more.
