How to Help
Ashton’s Birthday Wish Coat Drive will accept coats, toys, and donations in support of local families in need. Monetary donations will be used to help clean the gently-used coats and to buy additional coats.
When looking through your closet for coats, keep in mind that not all children wear small kid sizes and that adult sizes are needed too.
Additionally, at the event Tom Powell will be accepting toy donations early for the Tot Lift 2016.
If you would like to help, have questions, or are in need of a coat, please email [email protected].
