C4K Collection Period: September 25 to October 25

Thank you for being a part of 4 News Now Annual Coats 4 Kids Campaign! Every year the community comes together to collect, clean and distribute winter coats! All of the coats stay in the communities they are donated in!

If you would like to be a drop off location in your community, you can pick up a Coats 4 Kids collection box kit at the KXLY Broadcast Group located at 500 West Boone Avenue, Spokane, WA 99201 beginning September 17th. The kit comes complete with a box, collection bags and promotional flyers for you to display in your business.

Collected coats need to be taken to ALSCO for cleaning at 1923 N Waterworks, Spokane, WA. This is just off Trent Ave between Havana and Fancher. The volume of coats is too much for only the KXLY staff to handle, so please elect someone in your company to drop off the coats during ALSCO business hours 9am-5pm. Drop-offs during the collection period are encouraged, as the need for warm clothing starts soon!

For any Coats 4 Kids inquiries, please send an email to

Take a look at the Distribution Nights schedule of events taking place at the end of October and into November!

KXLY 4 News Now thanks all of our incredible volunteers and community businesses who have helped bring warmth and smiles to area children over the last 34 years. Thank you!
