Coats for Kids is a success due to the tremendous support received by the community year after year. Approximately 2,200 volunteers work together to sort, hang, and organize the thousands of winter coats donated for distribution. 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 2020.

Although different than years past, we hope you are able to attend and find it just as fulfilling, knowing your time is critical to our ultimate goal of keeping Central Texas children warm this winter.
