Coats for Kids helps teens

 

The West 49 store in Willowbrook Shopping Centre is asking customers to bring in merchandise.

This will be year 12 for West 49’s Coats for Kids campaign and the Langley store will be accepting gently used or new winter coats for Covenant House in Vancouver.

The campaign runs until Nov. 19 and donors receive a discount from West 49.

Coat collection barrels will be placed in each and every store.

Everyone who brings in a clean, insulated, gently used winter coat to a West 49 store across Canada will receive $25 off any winter jacket $99 and up, including fashion jackets.

Since 2002 more than 88,000 kids have received winter coats as a result of this program.
