ALSCO cleans thousands of donated coats for “Coats 4 Kids” drive

Last week we began our Coats 4 Kids drive, an effort to make sure every child in our area has a coat for winter.

We’ve already collected over one thousand coats. Those coats are now at ALSCO for cleaning.

For over 100 years, the company has cleaned linens and clothes for area businesses. They were up for the challenge of getting thousands of coats ready, as their machines can wash up to 500 pounds of clothes in each load. They say they can get every coat ready in one day, if needed. The company cleans over 1 million pounds of laundry every month.

ALSCO will store coats at their location till distribution days in November.

Coat drop-off locations are listed here, as well as information on distribution days.
