WALDRON, Ind. (November 10, 2022) – Waldron Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center, the skilled nursing facility in Waldron, Ind., is holding its first annual kids coat drive from November 3 to 17, 2022. Anyone interested in donating new or gently used children’s coats can drop them off at three local organizations that will distribute them to kids in need.
“Managing this coat drive is very much in keeping with our skilled nursing center’s commitment to be a good community neighbor,” said Nicole Clapp, Waldron Rehab’s administrator. “We know that by distributing these coats to local people in need, our event partners will play an active role in helping community kids and their families.”
Anyone with spare children’s coats, in sizes ranging from infant to young adult, are encouraged to drop them off at any of these locations in Shelbyville:
- Head Start Program, 1609 S. Miller Street
- Shelbyville Boys Club, 710 S. Miller Street
- Waldron Elementary School, 306 East Street
The three organizations above will collect the coats from drop-boxes in their lobbies and provide them to families who are in need of jackets, snowsuits, and other cold-weather clothing.
Waldon Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center hosts a variety of yearly events to benefit the community. Past events have included Easter egg hunts and visits from the Easter Bunny; Halloween trunk or treats; Big Wheels races with the kindergarten class; and drive-through holiday lights and decorations.
