Celebrating its 35th year, Coats for Kids wouldn’t be possible without the help of our dedicated community volunteers each year. In response to COVID-19, and to be mindful of the health and safety of our volunteers and recipients, we are modifying volunteer opportunities for 2021. 

Although different from years past, we know your participation in Coats for Kids will be just as fulfilling this year. Please know that the gift of your time is critical to our ultimate goal of keeping central-Texas children warm this winter. 


Volunteers Needed for Coat Sorting: Monday, November 29 through Sunday, December 12

  • Shifts are available each day from 10:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m –5:00 p.m., and 6:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m., to help hang, sort, and size coats for order fulfillment.
  •  We will continue to monitor and adhere to the City of Austin COVID-19 guidelines, and adapt based on the recommendations in place during Coats for Kids volunteer shifts.
  • All volunteers must be 15 years of age or older with the exception of designated youth nights which welcome volunteers eight years of age or older from 6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
