Warming Up The Community

The fifth annual Delaware KIDS Fund Camping Out for Coats is full steam ahead and is closing in on a significant achievement.

With funding for more than 120 new coats already in hand, the fundraiser is hoping to receive donations to purchase 1,400 coats this year. If that goal is met, Camping Out for Coats would have donated 10,000 coats since 2017.

Per tradition, Camping Out for Coats will host an actual camping excursion on Nov. 19 at Operation Warm Newport headquarters (10 S. James St., Newport). However, prior to the overnight camping, a kick-off party is set for 5-9pm. For a $10 donation, attendees receive drinks, appetizers, live music, bonfire and can take part in a silent auction. All coats donated to local children by the Delaware KIDS Fund are new. For more or to donate, visitย CampingForCoats.com
