Coats 4 Kids (Fall Program)
The Coats 4 Kids Program is a collaborative effort of ROE 30, ROE 21, and ROE 20 to provide clothing for students in need living in 17 counties in southern Illinois, including Jackson and Perry Counties. The Egyptian Building Trades is the primary funding organization and the Coats for Kids Golf Scramble held every year in June is their main fundraising event.
The paperwork and funding for Jackson and Perry Counties is distributed through the Regional Office of Education #30. The following steps outline the process for accessing these funds:
Teachers or social workers are asked to identify students in need and to and application home to parents.
School officials send returned applications to the ROE to be checked and approved for shopping.
Application is sent back to school with approval to shop.
School contacts the ROE to set up shopping arrangements.
The child must shop with school officials. Parents will not shop with the child.
Upon completion of shopping, final paperwork is signed by the student and is returned to the ROE.
The Coats 4 Kids Program is an outstanding example of the community agencies and school districts working together for the betterment of our students in southern Illinois.
Thank you to the Egyptian Building Trades for their support!
Requests should be mailed to the main office located in the Courthouse. (request form)
