Coats for Kids
We have distributed over 80,000 winter coats since 1999!
Collection Dates: November 1st-30th
We need your help!
A staggering 1 in 5 children in Allen County lives in poverty, with families working to make ends meet but unable to provide basic needs for their children.
Our purpose is simple: To provide a warm winter coat to every child in need in our county.
Be a part of this great Fort Wayne tradition! Donate today!

2. Make a financial donation to help purchase new coats!

If you are a parent in need of a coat for your child, please contact your school's guidance counselor to have them add a coat for your child to their order. All coats are distributed through the local schools or social service agencies in our area.
