The following is a news release from Coast RTA:
Coast RTA's Tenth Annual Coats for Kids campaign is underway throughout Horry County. Each year, Coast RTA accepts donations of new and gently used, coats, sweaters, blankets and other items to assist in keeping children and adults warm during the winter months. In the past, Coast RTA has distributed more than 1,500 items to those in need during the holiday season.
In celebration of its 10th year and with the 2015 Coats for Kids launch, Coast RTA is seeking the community's support with donations (either winter items or funds to purchase items) or through businesses, churches or other organizations serving as designated collection sites.
Corporate Sponsorship levels are tailored to the coat theme and vary from $1,500 for the Red Coat (Premier) Sponsor to the Brown Coat (Bronze) Sponsor at $250. Individuals and families may also contribute funds as Scarves & Mittens Sponsors. In addition to financial sponsorships, new and gently used children's coats are being collected. Funds raised through sponsorships and donations are used to purchase new coats for the annual Coats 4 Kids drive.
Collected items will be distributed from noon until 3 p.m. Saturday, December 12, at the Coast RTA Terminal, 1418 Third Avenue, Conway, South Carolina.
