Coats for Kids needs your support. In 2016, the Coats for Kids program encountered a significant increase in need. In the largest area school, Sussex Elementary, the need actually doubled from that of the previous year – 65 coats just for one school. We are committed to making sure that these little kids get the warm clothing they need before the harsh cold weather sets in.
How can you help? We are asking for your financial support to meet this need right here in our community. Your personal contribution for Coats for Kids, no matter the amount, written out to the Rotary Club of Sussex Charitable Trusts, Inc., will earn you a tax receipt, and go directly to funding warm clothes for elementary school kids.
For many years, the Sussex Rotary Club has canvassed the surrounding elementary schools of Sussex, Sussex Corner, Belleisle, Havelock, and Apohaqui working with the teachers to identify children that might be in need of winter clothing including coats, boots, mittens. We deliver the certificates to the schools, and the school staff ensures they go to deserving children.
This year’s need has resulted in the Sussex Rotary Club issuing over 100 certificates valued at $75.00, so the need is high, and your support today is needed more than ever before!
