Donations are needed for Colvin Cleaners' Annual Coats 4 Kids Drive. Here's how you can help.

Coats 4 Kids is an annual program created by Colvin Cleaners. This program allows Buffalo's favorite dry cleaner to give back to the community in a way that WNYorkers desperately need -- by giving the gift of warmth. Colvin Cleaners, along with other partners, collects winter garments from all collection locations, schools, churches and many businesses.


Colvin Cleaners' Coats 4 Kids initiative is presented by the Allstate Foundation, with support from Townsquare Media and WIVB Channel 4.
