As Coats and Boots expands to more schools, so does need for donations

North Fort Collins Business Association (NFCBA) is thankful for all who
have been so generous during their annual Coats and Boots campaign. NFCBA
provides quality coats and boots to those deemed most impacted by poverty.
They want to keep our Poudre School District (PSD) elementary kiddos, who
are living in poverty, warm and cozy this winter season.

They are grateful that the donations keep pouring in. NFCBA has purchased
and will soon distribute 900 coats and pairs of boots, hats and gloves to
PSD kiddos in need. It is not too late to donate. NFCBA hopes to reach
their goal soon and outfit the students before the snow flies.

NFCBA’s Coats and Boots mission is simple: to provide high quality winter
coats and b oots to Poudre School District’s students living in poverty.
And their vision is pure: that all children in Poudre School District will
be safe and warm when properly outfitted for our wintry weather and be able
to enjoy the pleasures of playing in the snow.

This year the project is growing from17 to 22 schools. The requests for
coats and boots are greater. NFCBA is confident they will raise enough
money with your support and adequately fill all the requests. The students
will be able to play at recess since boots are required to play on
snow-covered yards.

Bottom line, NFCBA will purchase coats and boots at below cost from Jax
and distribute them to children living in poverty who have requested
assistance. Hats and gloves will also be purchased.

Give the gift of warmth this winter season so all children in PSD will be
afford ed the pleasures of snow-play in comfort. Every penny of your
donation goes directly to purchasing winter-wear for children in need. Your
donation will provide seasons of warmth. Please write your checks and send
your donations to NFCBA, P.O. Box 115, Fort Collins, CO 80522. If you wish
to use PayPal, go to DONATE HERE, follow the instructions in Pay Pal to make
a donation. Our kiddos will thank you from the bottoms of their very warm hearts.
