Koats for Kids

Tax Donation Form





Since 1986, Klinke Cleaners has teamed up with local media and local philanthropic organizations to help provide winter coats for folks in our own communities that otherwise would not be able to afford a coat for Wisconsin’s cold winters. In 2023, we are working with WISC-TV3, the Boys and Girls Club of Dane CountyMagic 98 in the Madison area.

In September each year during our coat drive, you can come to any Klinke Cleaners location in Dane or Waukesha Counties and drop off your unneeded winter coats, scarves, hats, gloves and mittens.  Thanks to the involvement of the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County, all of your donations help out families in need in the Madison area.  In other words, every donated coat helps someone right here in southern Wisconsin! Since the program’s inception in 1986, Koats for Kids has collected, cleaned and distributed 344,384 coats to those of need in Dane County as well as 2,147 coats in the Milwaukee area.  In total, we have distributed 346,531 coats!  We hope that you will help us make Koats for Kids even better each year by donating your unused items.
