State Coats for Kids Chairman Bob Masse Jr, PSD is soliciting pledges for monetary donations through September 15th; pledges should be paid by 10/31.  Distribution sites are being identified and dates and times setup, councils should contact Bob to volunteer to host.  One distribution is already on the calendar.

Looking to help?  Coats are purchased in cases of 12, and the price include shipping (tax is additional).  For the smaller sizes it’s $237.38/case and $334.80 for the teen coats (prices include shipping, but there is a 7.25% tax rate).  Send donations (from councils, assemblies, and individuals) to State Secretary Bill Kelly (address).  Funds will be combined, so you don’t have to donate in full case amounts to contribute to the state coat distribution(s).
