Keeping kids in our community warm in the cold weather.

Bettendorf, IA, December 31, 2012– K&K True Value is hosting a coat drive in league with Dr. David E. Lane Coats for Kids during the month of January. The public may drop off any size of gently-used or new kids' coats at K&K's main entrance inside the store during business hours. At the end of January all coats will then be delivered to Burkes cleaners for a cleaning cycle before being distributed to local kids in need.
"We are proud to be able to provide a location for the public to give a bit of goodwill to local kids in need," says manager Casey Keller.
Interested persons may visit http://www.qcacoatsforkids.org/ for further information or to make a monetary donation to the Coats for Kids drive.
K&K True Value works hard to provide quality customer service to the public as well as join with the community in providing for those with need.
