Coats for KidsWest 49 is kicking off the 9th year of their successful Coats for Kids campaign in your area today. This year's ambitious goal is 16,000 coats nationally! Help participate in order to help them collect as many coats as possible for your local charity.

Coast to Coast, West 49 is helping kids in need of coats For every individual requesting a coat there is a story. Coats get lost, stolen, worn out, outgrown and then winter arrives and a replacement is needed. That is where West 49 and The Salvation Army in Guelph team up to provide those coats. Every winter, the Staff and Customers at West 49 generously provide the coats and The Salvation Army makes them available to any one who has a need.

Just imagine how you warm the heart and body of Maria against the cold blasts of winter with those beautiful coats. Maria and her four sons were new arrivals from Africa. They arrived in Guelph as refugees in late October. How grateful she was that coats were available to provide the warmth as they prepared to face their first winter.
