For more information on what Coats for Kids does, watch the news segment on KVUE Austin.
This annual community event collects and distributes new and gently worn, warm winter coats to the eligible youth of Central Texas, while also providing an opportunity for families to access local resources through an onsite community fair. Your support - both financial and in volunteer efforts - helps to keep so many children warm and healthy during the cold winter months. You can donate towards the purchase of new coats - just $15 buys a new coat!
Celebrating 29 years, Coats for Kids is one of the largest coat drives in the nation. The Junior League of Austin, Jack Brown Cleaners, KVUE and KVET are proud to sponsor this event and thank you for supporting this worthwhile cause!
