STEM Lab PTO Coats for Kids 2016 Winter Drive

Give Warmth to a neighborhood child this Holiday Season

Date: Nov. 30th – Dec. 14th

Who Benefits: All coats, clothing and shoes will be donated to STEM families and neighborhood families in need.

Why: Several neighborhood schools have a high need, with a majority of students on a free or reduced lunch program. Many students come to school with little to no warm clothing – outerwear during the winter months. These schools also do not have a PTO even after multiple attempts to start a group. Parent volunteerism is exceptionally low due to language barriers or work schedules. Providing this small gift to neighbors, we are emphasizing the 3 C’s – composure, compassion and communication.

What Will We Collect: All winter clothing and gear will be accepted, focusing on warmer items such as gently used coats, sweaters, jackets, sweatshirts, scarves, mittens/gloves and boots.

Drop Location: Drop boxes will be available at all main school entrances, including kinder doors. Boxes will also be present at all upcoming holiday events, day and evening sing-alongs, student leadership dances and the PTO December Dine-out.

Promotion: The Coats for Kids drive with be promoted via the PTO Website, FB page, IC messager, teacher emails, flyers to parents in folders – Friday, Dec. 2nd, with mention of coat drive at all upcoming event materials.

When Will We Deliver: Due to the end date of the coat drive (12/14), delivery will happen several times during the drive. Dates of these deliveries will be determined by the number of items received.

Additional Holiday Support:

  • Coat donation box at Dec. Dine-out at HuHot with a monetary donation box to also be available.
  • First Watch Restaurant – Northglenn will also have a donation box available, offering a $3 off coupon for all those that donate.
  • Small notes in both english & spanish will be placed in each coat. Examples include:
    • Smile, you are loved
    • May this coat keep you warm & happy
    • Sending our family’s warm wishes to you
    • A warm hug just for you.
  • Individual Family holiday adoption is also available for both STEM & neighborhood schools if interested.
