With the change of seasons and cooler temperatures it won’t be long before winter returns to Metro Louisville. Some children will need help staying warm this year and that is why Councilman David Yates (D-25) is once again asking the community to help “Coat a Kid” this coming Monday, October 15th.

“Last year, with the generous help of the people of our community, we were able to provide some 300 new coats to JCPS Students across our city,” says Yates. “The need is still great and this year we offer a fun way to help out.”

Working with the Shirley’s Way Queen of Hearts Drawing on Monday, October 15th, Councilman Yates is asking for new coats for JCPS students in need. The Queen of Hearts Drawing is set for Khalil’s, 10966 Dixie Highway.

The Queen of Hearts Drawing is a massively successful charitable event that supports Shirley’s Way, a great local Valley Station non-profit that benefits families struggling to pay bills or pay for groceries when a family member is suffering from cancer.

The Councilman has secured the donation of a new flat screen TV that will be raffled off to members of our community that donate the following to the “Coat a Kid” Drive:

  • NEW Coats
  • NEW Gloves & NEW Scarves
  • Minimum $25 Donation for JCPS Clothing Program

The raffle will take place between 8:00pm and 8:30pm.

“I am proud of our community’s previous generosity and I look forward to another successful event to help children in our area. I hope everyone can attend and bring along a new coat,” says Yates.
