A big-hearted group is hoping you will help kids in need.
Wendel Burt from Burt Brothers Tires & Service shares the details of the 13th annual Coats for Kids Car Show.
Cruisin’ the Boulevard Car Show “Cruisin’ the Boulevard Coats for Kids” is a charitable event sponsored by the Bountiful Rotary Club. This year marks the 13th anniversary of this event dedicated to aiding our local children.
Elementary school Principals in cooperation with the teachers and the PTA identify children in need of winter clothing from the Bountiful area schools. Once a child is identified, the principal presents a voucher to the parents. With the voucher, the child and parents can go to the Woods Cross K-Mart Store and pick out a new coat, boots and mittens.
Since our first Car Show in 1998 over 3500 children have received new winter coats, boots and mittens.
