Last year community partners made sure that no child in Oklahoma City Public Schools went without a warm winter coat. We are asking for your help again this year. When temperatures drop, thousands of Oklahoma City Public Schools students will not have a coat to keep them warm. It’s a shocking statistic but is a reality for these children. Another fact: Oklahoma City Public Schools is the state’s largest school district with 46,000 students and 90 percent living at or below the poverty line.
We cannot meet the needs without the support of community partners like you. Oklahoma City Public Schools rely on the support of community partners willing to step up and step in to provide assistance. Oklahoma City Public Schools and The Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools are working together to support our students and our goal is to raise $115,000 to be certain all who need it are provided with a warm winter coat.
Here is how you can help:
Send a check to The Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools, 431 W. Main St. Suite E, OKC, OK 73102, with Coat-A-Kid in the memo line, or click here to donate!
SPREAD THE WORD.
Post about Coat-A-Kid on your website and social media. Send an email to your coworkers or plan an employee fundraising drive. We will be happy to visit with your staff if that would be helpful to you.
No child in Oklahoma City Public Schools should go without a winter coat. Thank you in advance for your help in keeping our kids warm and ready to learn.
