Coats for Kids at West 49

West 49 Coats for Kids campaign runs through Nov. 21, with coat-collection barrels in each store, including the Kamloops location in Aberdeen Mall.

Everyone who brings in a clean, insulated gently used winter coat to any West 49 store will receive $25 off any winter jacket.

Donated jackets will then be given to various youth shelters and charities across the country.

In past campaigns, coats have been provided to organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Canadian Diabetes Association, Salvation Army, the United Way and local youth shelters and missions.
