Event Description

Because many foster kids arrive at their new homes with only the clothes on their backs, Sleep Country USA is holding its annual Coat Drive for Foster Kids, which will help keep the more than 26,000 foster children in Oregon and Washington warm during the blustery winter months.

New coats in every shape and size can be donated at any Sleep Country USA store and will be distributed among 15 Pacific Northwest foster care partner organizations. For more information on the location of the nearest store, please use the Sleep Country store locater at www.sleepcountry.com or call 1-888-88-SLEEP. Store hours are M-F 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

  • The NFL has to makes some changes
  • It's not just an NFL problem, it happens in all sports
  • It's not just an NFL problem, it's a societal problem
  • It's just a few players that make everyone look bad
  • It's always been a problem, but the media has brought the spotlight
