Your hometown radio stations – 97.5 KLAK, 93.1 KMKT and Mad Rock 102.5 – are asking you to clean out your closets, storage sheds and attics to find new or gently used coats to donate to our 2017 Share The Warmth Coat Drive – presented by City Credit Union with our local partners – Texas Laundry & Dry Cleaning, Fast Signs Texoma, KXII-TV and the Texoma Council of Governments.
All the coats donated by our listeners between Monday, October 2nd, 2017 and Friday, November 3rd, 2017 will be cleaned and distributed to families who need help staying warm this winter in Collin, Grayson, Fannin and Cooke counties. Over the last few years we’ve given donated coats to THOUSANDS of kids, teens and adults (including our local veterans) in North Texas. With your continued generosity, we can break another record again this year!
We also have a special Share the Warmth Cat Drive Kickoff event scheduled for Friday, October 6th at City Credit Union in Sherman. Join KLAK, KMKT and Mad Rock as we broadcast LIVE from 11am-1pm to get the donations started.
Need a coat for yourself or your family members? Our Share The Warmth Coat Drive Distribution Day is scheduled for Tuesday, November 14th from 2pm-6pm at the Texoma Council of Governments (TCOG) building – 1117 Gallagher Drive in Sherman. Coats will be available to the public on a first come, first serve basis.
