Event Description: Once again the United Way of Okaloosa-Walton Counties, in partnership with A & A Transfer & Storage, Bangkok Cleaners, Destin Cleaners, and The French Laundry, is planning the annual coat drive…Coats for Kids at Christmas to help children in need in Okaloosa and Walton Counties. Last year we were able to distribute over 2,000 coats to many families throughout the community and schools…this was made possible by the local banks, businesses and people like you who supported this project.

Volunteers will pick-up and deliver coats to Bangkok Cleaners, Destin Cleaners, or The French Laundry for cleaning. Participating United Way Agencies will distribute the coats to any child at no cost to the family. Coats for kids begins in October and ends December 10, 2013.

Please note: Although we appreciate all donations, we can ONLY accept coats and no other used clothing. Please distribute your other used clothing at Salvation Army, Harvest House, Waterfront Mission, etc. For more information, please contact the United Way at 243-0315 or email
