Schools, Clothing Bank Receive 2,000 Coats from TV Campaign

KOATS for Kids distributed coats for students in need

APS staff and volunteers from the Schools & Community Partnerships Department sorted more than 1,000 coats to distribute to students in Title I schools and the Title I Homeless Project earlier this month. 

The coats were donated through KOAT-TV’s annual KOATS for Kids drive. The station collected coats through the holiday months for needy students all over New Mexico. 

An additional 1,000 coats went to the Bernalillo County Chapter of the PTA Clothing Bank, which works with APS, where school based staff will be able to get coats to other students in need. 

Parents of students at Title I schools should contact their school counselor for more information.
