Hello Dayton and Cincinnati, we need your help to provide our transitional age youth new winter coats for the upcoming winter season. Kids in our independent living program depend on the RTA as their main mode of transportation.
We know it can get very chilly in Ohio and we want to do our best to make sure our independent living kids are warm. Youth in this program live in their own apartment, work and/or attend school and are learning life skills to transition to adulthood.
This is the third year we are working with the community to meet this need! This winter we have close to 20 youth in need of a coat. We can either match you up with a youth and give you their size to shop. Or you can donate to our coat fund online by clicking here. (then we will do the shopping!)
Any donation is greatly appreciated, we will work to provide a coat to any youth who enters the program now through the end of the winter season. Because kids in this program live on their own, the cost of buying a winter coat can be burdensome to their part time job income.
If you are interested in shopping for a coat please contact Ashley Pester for sizing information at firstname.lastname@example.org or (513) 659-8202.
