Rotary Coats for Kids Campaign Kick-off 2017

Each year the Burnaby Metrotown Rotary Club purchases new coats and collects used coats for children and youth in Burnaby.  Last year we delivered 1700 new coats to local Burnaby schools for deserving children.    

If you would like to help children and youth in Burnaby you can do so by either donating “new and gently used” waterproof coats with hoods, boxes will be available to make donations October 18, 2017, at Nelson Elementary School (box located at Administration Office).


November 8th the Rotary Coats for Kids truck will be at Nelson from 9:15am – 10:30am

If you require a coat, please pick up a registration form (can be obtained at Nelson’s office) which needs to be filled out by parents/guardians and returned no later than November 1st, to ensure enough coats are stocked prior to the trucks arrival.
