On Saturday, November 11, the Wisconsin Rapids Kiwanis clubhouse will be the site of a semi-annual vendor event. Around twenty vendors and crafters will be selling items and making donations to help purchase/collect coats and cold weather accessories. Wisconsin Rapids Kiwanis will also have a collection box for guests to bring in new and/or gently used coats, hats, mittens, etc. Monetary donations collected by the vendors will be used to purchase new items. The first 30 shoppers to bring in a donation will receive a goody-bag.
Wisconsin Rapids Kiwanis will use the winter gear collected for our annual Coats for Kids campaign. Items are cleaned and distributed to school districts in South Wood Co and the Family Resource Center in Wisconsin Rapids.
