A Higher Purpose
Provide warmth for deserving children during cold winter months. Councils across North America can purchase new winter coats for children in need at a discount and distribute them in their local communities.
Families struggling to make ends meet use their scarce resources to meet the most basic needs and cannot always afford the vital necessity of a new winter coat. The goal of the Coats for Kids program is to ensure that no child in North America goes without a coat during the winter season. Through the dedication of councils across the United States and Canada, hundreds of thousands of new winter coats have been distributed to children since program inception.
Featured Program Requirements
Councils are required to distribute a specific number of coats. The requirements for each coat type are different and outlined in the table below. Councils must distribute the number of coats shown in one of the lines of the table. Shipping cost is not included in these numbers. Report activity using the Coats for Kids Report Form (#10675).
