It's easy to take our gloves, stocking caps, socks, shoes, coats, and other winter clothing items for granted. But kids throughout our community don't have the proper clothes to stay warm during the winter months.

You can make a difference in the lives of many children this winter with a donation during an annual kid winter clothes drive this Friday. The donation process is super simple and it's all for the kids.

Donate Kid Winter Clothes For Project Bundle Up

The Salvation Army’s annual Project Bundle Up is partnering with our news partner, KWQC, for another drive at the TV station to collect winter clothing items for kids in need this winter.

The drive will take place this Friday, Oct. 13 from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the KWQC TV6 station, 805 Brady Street, Davenport.

To donate, just enter KWQC off Brady Street, drop off the items while remaining in your vehicle, and exit on Perry Street.

Volunteers will be outside the station to help collect the items. Donation items needed for children from infant to early teens include:

  • Winter coats
  • Hats
  • Gloves
  • Scarves
  • Boots
  • Cash donations, which will allow the Salvation Army to shop for what is needed

The annual event helps provide clothing to children in need throughout the Quad Cities area.

If You Can't Donate Friday, Here Is How You Can Still Help

For anyone unable to participate during Friday’s event, new coats and other winter gear will be accepted at the Salvation Army Family Services and Corps, 100 Kirkwood Blvd., Davenport, or at the Heritage Temple Corps, 2200 5th Avenue, Moline, during office hours, according to KWQC.

Families needing children’s coats may apply by phone at 563-324-4808 in Scott County or 309-764-2811 in Rock Island County. For more information visit the Salvation Army website.
