LaSata announces coat drive throughout Southwest Michigan

LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Kim LaSata on Friday announced “Kim’s Coat Drive for Kids,” an effort to collect new or gently used coats for children throughout Southwest Michigan.

Residents will be able to donate coats at 13 locations across Berrien, Cass and St. Joseph counties through October.

“As the temperatures begin to cool, many kids throughout Southwest Michigan find themselves without a warm jacket that fits,” said LaSata, R-Bainbridge Township. “That’s why I am inviting Southwest Michiganders to join me this month for Kim’s Coat Drive for Kids. Please consider donating new and gently used coats and jackets for kids at participating locations in in our communities.”

LaSata said all donated coats will be cleaned and distributed to children in the 21st Senate District.
