Coats for Kids – Community Fair

After you receive your warm coat at Coats for Kids, step outside to enjoy the Coats for Kids Community Fair!  The Community Fair takes place on the Palmer Events Center patio from the hours of 8:30am-1 pm on Saturday, December 8th.  Over thirty Austin agencies are available and ready to offer information about resources in our community. Children can walk away with a book, a bike helmet, and a pair of gloves!  They can also receive a vision screening, a free flu shot, and participate in interactive games! Parents can get information about access to health care, gun safety in the home, and college affordability.   And that’s just a sample of what all the Community Fair has to offer!
