North Royalton students 'Stuff the Bus' for Coats for Kids

Area students, parents collect coats for kids

NORTH ROYALTON, OHIO - Saturday afternoon, students from the North Royalton school district and football team got together to "Stuff the Bus" with gently worn coats and cash outside the North Royalton Board of Education on Royalton Road.

Did you know that 2016 marks the 35th anniversary of Coats for Kids, which was started in 1981 by local radio station employees when they realized that many children were missing school in the winter because they did not have warm coats.

That November, Coats for Kids - Cleveland was founded and the radio station began soliciting donations of like-new, gently worn coats and cash donations to purchase new coats.

Since then, more than 500,000 new or like-new coats have been distributed to children (ages 0 – 18) in need throughout northeast Ohio.
