Why               

As the cold weather approaches, and we start to bundle up in warm winter coats, many children and adults in Shawnee County will go without the same protection.  For the past 32 years, Scotch Cleaners of Topeka has partnered with The Topeka Salvation Army to provide coats through the “Share the Warmth” program. During that time over 26,272 coats have been cleaned and distributed to children and adults.  In 2017, 4,400 coats were given out at the Topeka Salvation Army.  Major LeeAnn Burkett, Corps Officer of the Topeka Salvation Army, states that "partnering with a community-minded, caring business like Scotch Cleaners allows us the opportunity to provide a much needed service to those in need within our community. We are grateful for their generosity and their continued partnership.”

 

Collection and Cleaning

This year is not any different as Scotch Cleaners will begin collecting coats on Monday, October 22, 2018, and will continue thru Friday, November 16, 2018.  The Salvation Army is asking for the Topeka community’s help in donating gently worn coats in all sizes for both children and adults.  Scotch Cleaners will collect and clean all donated coats. The Topeka Salvation Army is in particular need of youth coats.
