West 49 Coats for Kids 2013

Coats for Kids - West 49

West 49 staff Steve Bartu and Amanda Wheeler helping with the 11th year of the West 49 Coats for Kids campaign.

West 49 has kicked off their 11th year off their successful Coats for Kids campaign back in October, but there’s still time left to get your coats in!  This year, West 49 has been collecting coats for the Medicine Hat Women’s Shelter Society. With less than 7 days to go, West 49 encourages tweens, teens and adults to add clean, insulated winter coats to the collection barrel until November 20th and receive $25 towards a new coat from West 49.

A bit of information on West 49 Coast for Kids:

  • Since 2002 more than 85,000 kids have received winter coats as a result of this program.
  • West 49 Coats for Kids campaign begins on October 17th and runs through to November 20th.
  • Coat collection barrels will be placed in each and every store.
  • Everyone who brings in a clean, insulated gently used winter coat to any West 49 store across Canada will receive $25 off any winter jacket.  Donated jackets will then be given to various youth shelters and charities across the country.

West 49 is also encouraging customers to share photos of them donating a coat in store through: via social media with the hashtag #W49C4K
