STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. (Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2023) – The Staten Island Board of Realtors® (SIBOR) “Keeping Kids Warm” initiative is seeking to provide brand new winter coats to local children in need.

The coat drive is an offshoot of SIBOR’S “Pack-to-School” program, which since launching 24 years ago has annually provided hundreds of Island elementary school students with an assortment of brand new classroom supplies.

“The provision of a new coat offers more than warmth – it enables a child to attend school more comfortably during the colder winter months,” said SIBOR Director of Membership Linda F. Smith, coordinator of the “Keeping Kids Warm” project.

Sizes that are needed range from Children’s Size 5 through Adult Medium. Coats may be dropped off Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at SIBOR headquarters: 1150 South Ave., Suite 303, Bloomfield.

Coats will be accepted through Thursday, Dec. 14.
