The Junior League of Greater Alton’s “Coats for Kids” campaign is in it’s final days but organizers are making one final push in hopes of seeing a final burst of donations. To date, more than 150 coats and nearly $1,200 have been collected. They will be donated to Riverbend Head Start and Family Services to provide coats for children in the head Start program throughout Madison County. The fundraiser and coat collection runs through December 11th.

If you’d like to donate a new or gently used coat or funds to the cause, contact JLGA member Katie Boley at 618-980-3922. You can also make monetary donations online by visiting
