BIs your council planning to do a Coats for Kids program this year? You can provide warmth for deserving children during cold winter months. To help beginning to plan for a successful Coats for Kids program in 2018-2019, please see the information below.
The below table lists the prices and quantities for each style of coat provided through the Supreme Council. The Qualifications column lists the number of cases your council must distribute in order to satisfy program requirements and have your work counted towards two credits in the Community section of the Columbian Award. As noted in the Faith In Action Guidebook:
Quantity of Coats (Prepack)
Total (Per Case)
Light Weight Prepack
All councils are welcome to participate in this important program. Coats are available through www.knightsgear.com. These prices do not include the cost of shipping. Shipping will be no more than $20.00 per case.
Please do not submit orders to the Department of Fraternal Mission. Orders must be submitted through www.knightsgear.com, Orders received by Fraternal Mission will be returned.
At the conclusion of the program your council must submit the Coats for Kids Report Form (#10675) to firstname.lastname@example.org, to receive credit towards the Columbian Award.
As always, thank you for all of the work that you and your council do, especially your efforts through the Coats for Kids program, ensuring that children in your community stay warm this winter.
