The Annual UCFSD COAT DRIVE is Well Underway!

Please Drop off all donations now through December 18th

Coat Drive boxes have been steadily filling at our elementary schools, Patton Middle School, and UHS!  While we are happy with the response received so far, if possible, please spread the word that we need more infant and toddler coats.

What will we be doing with the items donated?
The Kennett Area Community Service (KACS) Christmas Basket Giveaway Day is Saturday, December 20th.  KACS provides food baskets, coats and toys to their clients.  Their client base is approximately 650 families from the Kennett area.
The event will be held from 9:00 am-3:00 pm at the New Garden Maintenance Building.

What are we collecting?

  • Gently used coats, jackets, hats/gloves/mittens of any size.  Please look through your closets and storage bins for gently used, clean items.
  • We also welcome new items or monetary donations! 
  • If you see any great bargains in the coming weeks, please consider purchasing and donating to this important District effort.
  • Coats may be dropped at any of our school collection boxes through December 18th or dropped off at the New Garden Maintenance Building on Friday, December 19th between the hours of 9-11 am, 1-3 pm, and 3-5 pm.

How can I Volunteer?

  • Donate items to collection boxes located in schools through December 18th.
  •  A Sign-Up Genius has been sent out to those previously indicating they would like to volunteer transporting Coats on December 19th or to assist with the giveaway on December 20th. 
  • If you would like volunteer, please email to be sent an invitation to sign-up.  Please be aware that EVERYONE volunteering on December 20th must fill out an Event Volunteer application, and if they are under the age of 18, a Youth Volunteer Consent form by December 15th.  The form(s) will be emailed to you after you sign up.

For any additional information on this effort, please email Katie Nichols  or Carolyn

We look forward to making this year?s Coat Drive a huge success!
