Libby’s Koats for Kids Program Gets a Much-Needed Boost

  • Local Champion: Kiwanis Foundation of Montana
  • Date Funded: October 21, 2022
  • Grant Amount: $10,000

Each winter, the local Kiwanis Foundation in Libby provides coats, hats, gloves, and boots to children in need on a rotating basis. The goal is for those items to be returned to organization at the end of the winter and redistributed the following year. However, many donated items did not return the past few years, leaving a huge deficit in the winter wear recycle program. After learning about community projects LOR had supported in Libby, staffers at Kiwanis reached out to the foundation for help—and with LOR’s support, Kiwanis purchased more hats, gloves, and boots, replenishing the stock of winter wear and allowing the Koats for Kids program to continue.
