• Coats4Kids want to be sure that the children we help receive only a top quality garment – one that will last and continue to keep a child warm in future years, even after its first wearer has grown out of it.
  • There are already a number of initiatives to collect and distribute secondhand coats, to both children and adults. However, children’s coats seem to be in fairly short supply.
  • Children living in poverty or destitution may never have had any new clothing. A smart, warm, new winter coat can work wonders for a child’s mental health, confidence, and self-esteem – a fact the schools we work with readily confirm.
