Donations of New Coats Needed to Serve Increasing Numbers Across Sheboygan County

Oct 20, 2020

SHEBOYGAN, WI (October 20, 2020)The Coats for Kids community service campaign is underway at Reinbold-Novak Funeral Home now through October 30. While the need in the community for warm winter wear is expected to increase, the number of donated coats received so far have decreased.

Based on the increase in services already provided in response to the pandemic, The Salvation Army is expected to serve up to 155 percent more people in 2020 with Christmas assistance, including warm winter wear, putting food on the table, paying bills, providing shelter and helping place gifts under the tree – assuming the resources are available. In Sheboygan county, we distributed a coat, hat, gloves and scarf to 554 individuals last year. If we see the predicted level of increased requests for service, that would mean 858 community members would need our help to stay warm. To date 167 coats have been donated.

Area residents are asked to donate new coats of any size, for any age including adults. Due to additional safety precautions this year, donations of used coats will not be accepted. The greatest need is for new children’s coats and larger sized new adult coats. Drop off coat donations at Reinbold-Novak Funeral Home located at 1535 South 12th St. in Sheboygan during the week between 8:30am and 4:00pm.

Visit or call 920-458-3723 to learn how you can receive help or how you can provide support. Every donation provides help and hope to those in need, and all gifts stay within Sheboygan county.
