We rely heavily on partnerships with schools and local service organizations to effectively and safely provide a coat to any child who needs one during Distribution Week. 

We consider Coats for Kids to be an undertaking by the whole community. As always, we rely greatly on donations — both monetary and physical — as well as the support of our community volunteers and partners. A donation of any amount is helpful and greatly appreciated. With $20, we can buy a new coat for a child who would otherwise go without one.

Each year, more than 450 JLA volunteers and 2,000 community volunteers participate in the acquisition, sorting, and distribution of coats. It is due to the valued support of local groups, businesses, schools, and individuals that Coats for Kids continues to thrive and serve the children and families of Central Texas each winter.

Coat collection begins Nov. 14 and runs through Dec. 7. If you would like to donate a new or gently used coat, please drop it off at any Jack Brown Cleaners location beginning Nov. 14, 2022.
