Coats for Kids and Families

Get Involved

Looking to make a difference in your community? Start a coat drive!

We are looking for adult and children size warm winter coats. Each year we aim to collect 50,000 warm winter coats to provide to individuals and families in need. Coats are cleaned by Anton’s Cleaners and made available to a network of over 90 distribution partners made up of local nonprofits, social service agencies, and schools to ensure the coats are given to those who really need them free of charge.

Are you a nonprofit, social service agency, or school looking to receive coats?

Coats for Kids partners with many social service agencies and other organizations, to distribute coats. We are eager to expand our outreach so that everyone who needs a coat will have one. If your organization can help distribute coats, we would very much like to talk with you about the possibility of having you join the Coats for Kids distribution team. As part of our commitment to reach as many people as possible, we require that coats be distributed at no charge.
