The 4 N.I.N.E. and North East Lions Club coat distribution is open for applications to North East residents in need. Coats, hats and a book will be provided.
Coats are available only to residents of North East for infants to preschool-aged kids and kinder-garten to fifth grade with a completed application.
Middle-and high school-aged kids may contact their school office or 4 N.I.N.E. if in need of a coat.
Pickup will be kept inside individuals’ vehicles for limited contact.
If children are in the car during pickup, they may step out and be measured for boots.
Boots will be ordered and delivered to the school at a later time for pickup.
Children cannot try on coats, but coats can be exchanged for a size up until Nov. 6. All size chang-es must go through the North East Lions Club via Facebook or email.
Additional information can be requested for sizing and, if in doubt, size up.
Applications can be found at the North East Lions Club website and Facebook page; 4 N.I.N.E. Center; North East School District’s E.C. Davis Elementary and Intermediate schools; North East Presbyterian Preschool; and CMA Daycare.
Residents can email email@example.com for an application as well.
Only children’s legal guardians should complete the application.
Children will only receive one coat regardless of how many households he or she resides in.
Applications are due to the schools on Friday, Oct. 22.
