Special FOX6 Coats for Kids collection events

Join FOX6 at Steinhafels in Waukesha for a drive-through coat collection event, Monday, Dec. 6 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The first 250 cars to come through and donate at least four (4) coats will receive a pair of 1-day admission tickets to Summerfest 2022 – while supplies last. Steinhafels in Waukesha is located at Hwy F and I-94.

If you don’t have a coat to donate, no worries, you can still help! Make a donation to the FOX6 Coats for Kids phone bank. Just $20 will buy a brand new, warm winter coat. A $60 donation will buy three new coats. A $100 donation will buy five new coats!

Volunteers will be taking your calls on Monday, Dec. 6 from 6 a.m. until noon, 4 p.m. until 6:30 p.m., and 9 p.m. until 10:30 p.m.

ALL sizes of coats are needed – ALL sizes of children’s coats for the younger kids, and ALL sizes of adult coats for the teens and older children. Every coat donated will be cleaned by ITU and delivered to The Salvation Army for distribution.
