Coats 4 Kids is an annual fundraiser that has been collecting coats for children for 26 years. They start collecting in mid-September so children can keep warm just in time for the cold and wet fall and the colder and snowy winter.
KXLY has teamed up with the fundraiser to help collect coats at the Spokane Interstate Fair. On Sunday, September 18th, visitors who bring new or gently used coats to donate will let one child 13 and under in free to the fair from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Coat drop-offs will be at the entry gates.
If you're headed up to the fair for a variety of events on the 18th, including the full-sized car demolition derby, don't forget to bring a new or gently used children's coat that you can donate. That Sunday is the last day of the fair.
