Steiner Collects Koats4Kids 2018

Koats4Kids

With winter approaching, some of the most vulnerable in our society — children — could use a little help to stay warm. For the 17th year, Steiner has partnered with the Salvation Army for its annual Koats4Kids drive. The drive helps collect and distribute cold weather clothing to the less fortunate children in Rockford, IL. and surrounding areas. 

Collection barrels will be located at all  Steiner branches starting on September 18, 2018.


The following new or gently used items are needed most:

  • Coats
  • Hats
  • Mittens
  • Scarves
  • Snow Pants
  • Boots

Donated items must be in good wearable condition, clean, and not have any holes or stains. Adult sizes are also appreciated as many kids can wear them.  All barrels will be collected on October 18th, so if you wish to donate, don’t delay!


Over the past two winters, the following items were donated at Steiner location collection boxes:

  • 226 coats
  • 100 hats
  • 41 pairs of gloves/mittens
  • 9 scarves
  • 6 pairs of snow pants
  • 4 pairs of snow boots

We thank everyone who contributed in the past to this great cause and look forward to once again help children in need this winter season.
