Coin Drive Information
Clothes For Kids is a nonprofit corporation serving low-income students in Snohomish County and the Northshore School District by providing students with a complete wardrobe of quality school clothing at no cost to their families. This year Clothes For Kids provided 3,800 school wardrobes to local low-income students.
Coins For Kids is kids helping kids! This annual coin drive supports the school wardrobe program of Clothes For Kids while providing a unique opportunity for student community involvement. We encourage all local schools to support this event, and all the funds raised go toward helping students right here in our own community. Local businesses, churches, and service organizations can organize a coin drive as well.
It doesn’t take a big idea for big returns. Coins For Kids is so simple and yet so powerful! Your spare change can make a difference in a child’s life.
Clothes For Kids will make it easy! We will provide the posters, fliers and materials—including a Ziploc bag for every student to collect coins and bring them back to school. You just choose the dates for your coin drive (usually 1 or 2 weeks) that will work best for your schedule.
Your school or organization identifies a point person to coordinate dates and materials. Clothes For Kids can pick up coins as needed during your drive, and will count all of your coins and keep you updated to the running total. Schools can run classroom competitions or other activities to encourage participation in the drive.
Clothes For Kids will also seek a corporate sponsor for your school’s coin drive, to match part or all of the funds that your school raises.
