Coats for Kids
The Salvation Army Coats for Kids program has been keeping Twin Cities children warm for more than 30 years. The 2016 coat collection has concluded, but you can still help when you give online to buy new coats. A donation of just $18 helps buy a winter coat for a kid in need. Help us break last years record of nearly 9,000 coats. During the 2016 drive, donations up to $30,000 were successfully matched by Alerus Mortgage.
Give a Coat
Don’t have a coat to donate? You can also give online to help buy new coats. A $18 donation covers the cost of a warm winter coat for a kid in need.
Each year, thousands of children residing in the metro area – from infants to 18 year-olds – receive a warm coat for the winter through Coats for Kids. And, you can be the one to help put the coat in their hands and a smile on their face. We have a variety of ways for volunteers to help – from answering phones at a phonebank to sorting donations or helping parents find coats for their kids. Check back next year to get involved.
