Coats-For-Kids is a program offered by the Salvation Army, in which families may register to receive new and gently used coats for their children.
According to Salvation Army representatives; each year, thousands of kids in our area face the cold winter months without warm jackets or coats.
Here in the Greater Green Bay area, there are many convenient locations where you can drop off new or gently used coats, mittens, caps, and hats for kids - toddlers through teens.
Two of our Green Bay News Network Members are offering their area locations as drop-off sites for Coats-For-Kids:

We, at The Green Bay News Network, hope that our members and readers will help in this worthy cause, which last year provided more than 12,000 coats for needy children.

[*In 2015, we welcomed Carrie Zehms and "From Above" to the Green Bay News Network. This week, we give you an update on this unique family-friendly enterprise.]
From Above is a non-profit organization, whose main revenue stream comes from generous donations and grants. Sale of baked goods is the secondary source of revenue. The bakery also aids teens and people with special needs in developing vocational skills and provides volunteer opportunities to people of all ages. Carrie Zehms is the founder and president of From Above.
"As a parent, I realized there were few social outlets for Catholic teens to deepen and share their Catholic faith. Through prayer, the Holy Spirit put on my heart the idea of a Catholic Youth Center. The Holy Spirit led me to the idea of using my gift for baking as a means to start/support a Youth Center for middle and high school students."
Carrie tells us that the original vision of From Above was for teens to have a safe and fun place to go where they can discuss and deepen their faith: A place where true Christian friendships are developed.
"As time went on, now in our 3rd year, God has us on a more diverse journey. We are now working with not only kids, but people with special needs, families, the home bound, and the wider community."
From Above is also a place for families to come together to celebrate, connect and grow.
"By having the students work in the bakery, it will give them life skills to help them in the future. To teach them how to work together, solve problems, take responsibility for their actions and to bring Gods love into the community and be a witness for Christ.
The bakery will produce quality baked goods using the best ingredients, exceptional customer service and most of all, using the gifts in which God gave us. The students will have a strong love for Christ and will be witnesses for Him."
From Above is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, so they rely on the generosity of the local community to keep ther mission going.
Please pray and consider making a donation today. Carrie and all of her faithful volunteers thank you for your support! To make a secure dontation now, Please Click Here.
From Above Gathering Place & Bakery is located at 1599 Western Avenue, on Green Bay's West Side, near the intersection of Western and South Military Avenues.

Are you a business owner?
Whether you have a home-based business or a traditional "brick and mortar" small business, you'll likely be interested in saving money on your taxes.
This week, Craig Siminski, of the Equity Design Group, shares some helpful information as Tax Season approaches.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has made the tax code more favorable for small businesses. Still, owners will want to take full advantage of every legal tax break they can find. The following deductible business costs could help reduce your 2018 tax bill. Be sure to consult with your tax professional before you take any specific action.
Home Office Deduction
Business owners who operate out of a qualifying home office have two available claiming options, either of which could result in a larger deduction. Whichever option the taxpayer chooses, the eligibility criteria are the same. To qualify for a deduction, a home office must be used in a trade or business — not to manage personal investments or pursue a hobby. It must also be used regularly and exclusively for business.
Under the original method, eligible taxpayers can write off a percentage of home expenses such as depreciation, rent, property taxes, insurance, utilities, maintenance, and repairs. The percentage is based on the square footage of...

Two big animal welfare organizations are encouraging people to adopt, not shop, for their next (or FIRST) family dog, with a special month-long celebration commemorating all the shelter and rescue dogs out there who are still looking for a home.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and the American Humane Association (AHA) have deemed the month of October National Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month and Adopt-a-Dog Month, respectively.
The names are slightly different, but the goal is the same — National Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month and Adopt-a-Dog Month are both about getting as many great dogs as possible into the loving homes they deserve.
It might sound obvious to anyone who has added a shelter dog to their family before, but adopting a pet is quite fulfilling.
According to the ASPCA, the results of an Edge Research poll suggest people who adopt a dog from a shelter are far more likely to feel good about their experience than those who purchase a pet from a pet store — something to keep in mind while searching for your canine companion.
So, if you're thinking of adding a dog (or two) to your family, what are some reasons to consider adopting a Shelter Dog?
Mathew Coulton, of Wiley Pup, offers several great reasons:
Shelter dogs know that you rescued them.
Supporting shelters means you are helping to combat animal cruelty and neglect.
Supporting shelters helps cut down on pet overpopulation.
Putting puppy mills out of business.
Save a dog’s life.
