Frequently Asked Questions
Can I order coats myself?
Koats for Kids only accepts orders from Winnipeg schools, daycares or nonprofit and social service organizations.
Can I come to Koats for Kids to select winter gear for my family?
Sorry, Koats for Kids is not open to the public.
Does Koats for Kids distribute winter outerwear to communities outside of Winnipeg?
Koats for Kids is a program of United Way Winnipeg. We are a local United Way, supporting the Winnipeg community. Unfortunately, we do not have the inventory or resources to distribute winter gear outside of Winnipeg.
For a list of organizations with second-hand clothing available in your community, please go to 211 Manitoba, click on the Food & Clothing tile, enter your location, check the Second-hand Clothing box and press Search.
Once an order is placed, how long will it take to receive winter gear?
Koats for Kids relies on donations from the community, and orders are fulfilled by volunteers—so we are unable to provide a standard timeframe for fulfilling orders. If you have questions about an order that you have placed, please contact Koats for Kids.
