Coats for Kids kicks off Sept. 7
The Rotary Coats for Kids campaign kicks off on Saturday, Sept. 7 in Civic Square, next to the Bob Prittie Metrotown Library, from 8:30 to 11 a.m.
Rotary members will be at Burnaby Public Library's annual pancake breakfast and summer reading club medal ceremony.
People are asked to help keep Burnaby children and youth warm this winter by bringing donations of gently-used, hooded jackets and coats to the event. Cash donations are also accepted, with $20 the cost of purchasing one coat.
Following the event, coat donations can dropped off at all Burnaby library branches.
The coats will be distributed through schools and community centres starting on Oct. 15.
