COATS FOR KIDS
In 1981, local radio station employees became aware of a large number of children missing school in the winter because they did not have warm coats. That November, Coats for Kids – Cleveland was founded when the radio station began soliciting donations of new or like-new winter coats. That first campaign filled the studio, and subsequent campaigns brought in even more coats, along with monetary donations used to purchase new coats.
Since then, millions of dollars have been raised and hundreds of thousands of new and like-new coats have been distributed to children in need in northeast Ohio.
Window Nation’s Efforts: Owners Harley and Aaron Magden, of Window Nation, have been avid supporters of Coats for Kids since 2013. The company contributed nearly $5,000 to the CFK organization just in return for customers mentioning Mike Trivisonno when they visited one of the northeast Ohio showrooms.
This year, Window Nation was honored with the opportunity to feature as the presenting sponsor of Triv’s Vegas Show at the Hilton Garden Inn on November 20 and 21. In addition, Window Nation was also able to donate $10,000 to help defray expenses associated with the Vegas Show.
This campaign season, the Window Nation showrooms in Warrensville Heights and on Grayton Road in Cleveland are also collecting coats! So if you get the chance, please feel free to stop by one of our locations to contribute your own donations!
