A Cleaner World in Boone is kicking off its 10th year of the Give a Kid a Coat campaign.

Each year since the business opened in 1999, the business has collected, cleaned and repaired coats for donation to the Salvation Army. Last year, the Boone location collected 598 coats for distribution to families in the High Country.

The coats are cleaned and repaired, if needed, then delivered once per week to the Salvation Army Family Store on N.C. 105 throughout the month of November.

A Cleaner World started the Give a Kid Coat program in 1987.

Thirty-one locations throughout North Carolina and Virginia will participate in 2009. To date the company has collected a total of 614,288 coats for the Salvation Army.

The coat drive will last until Nov. 28.
