Coats for Kids
A Higher Purpose
Provide warmth for deserving children during cold winter months. Councils across North America can purchase new winter coats for children in need at a discount and distribute them in their local communities.
Families struggling to make ends meet use their scarce resources to meet the most basic needs and cannot always afford the vital essential of a new winter coat. The goal of the Coats for Kids program is to ensure that no child in North America goes without a coat during the winter season. Through the dedication of councils across the United States and Canada, hundreds of thousands of new winter coats have been distributed to children since program inception.
Through our fund raising efforts, we strive to purchase at least 1 box (12 coats) for kids at our two local elementary schools. By engauging the parish, we hope to increase our purchase to 4 boxes (48 coats).
