Coats for Kids

Our History

The mission of Coats for Kids is simple, “Anyone who needs a coat will have one.” Each fall, Anton’s collects, cleans, and distributes over 60,000 coats for children and adults. There are more than 250 schools as well as over 300 companies, clubs, organizations and thousands of individuals who donate good quality coats. Nearly 90 social service agencies make sure the coats get to those in need, free of charge. Since the program’s conception in 1995, we have collected and distributed nearly 800,000 coats.


View Past Year Drives

The students that ran the program for the past two years are graduating. They have already appointed someone to handle the coat drive once they are gone. Count us in for next year.

Thank you for running the program. It fills an amazing need and allows students a great learning opportunity.
