Coats for Kids

Coats for Kids Save the Date for December 1 thru 12

December 1–12, 2020, The Junior League of Austin (JLA) will hold the 34th annual Coats for Kids Distribution. Together with our long standing partners—Jack Brown Cleaners, iHeart Radio, and KVUE—The Junior League of Austin will provide over 30,000 warm winter coats to Central Texas children in need.

The Junior League of Austin, its partners, and the community at large have an impressive and beautiful history of bringing warmth to the children and families in our community. In response to COVID-19, and to best serve the health and safety needs of our recipients and volunteers, Coats for Kids will have a modified format in December 2020.

Volunteer Registration:  October 9–December 11, 2020 

Distribution Week: December 1–12, 2020

Every $20 buys a new coat!

Our modified format will rely more 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 2020. 

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 is greatly appreciated. In fact, as little as $20 buys a new coat for a child who would otherwise go without.

Each year, over 450 JLA volunteers and more than 2,000 community volunteers participate in the acquisition, sorting, and distribution of coats. It is only with 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 in November and runs through the first week of December. If you would like to donate a new or gently used coat, please drop it off at any Jack Brown Cleaners location beginning November 7, 2020.

Every $20 buys a new coat.
