Coats for Kids Logo with Sponsors

Coats for Kids is an annual community project that collects and distributes more than 30,000 coats to eligible children and teenagers in Central Texas. Each year, The Junior League of Austin, Jack Brown Cleaners, iHeartRadio, and KVUE partner to bring the community together to ensure that the children of Central Texas stay warm.

There are two ways to receive a coat.
  1. Through your child’s school: 
Parents, Teachers or Parent Liaisons/School Administrators of students attending AISD, DVISD, PFISD or select Charter Schools are eligible to place a coat request order on behalf of a child. All eligible schools will be communicated with in the month of October with details on how to place the request orders. Siblings of children at these schools are also eligible to place a coat request order.
The Coats for Kids distribution team will deliver coats directly to each school. Your student’s school will send the coat home with your child during the month of December.
The Coats for Kids distribution team will provide a warm, winter coat from its inventory that best matches the coat request made for each child.

Although the Coats for Kids distribution team is not always able to provide the exact color or coat description as requested, they will always do their best to provide the coat size requested.
