Koats for Kids
Order Winter Gear

Parents: place your request with your child’s school, daycare or social service agency, where your child will receive their winter gear.

Winter gear for little Winnipeggers

Every year, from September to February, Winnipeggers donate over 6,000 coats, and Koats for Kids shares this winter gear with Winnipeg families.

For some children, having a warm coat means attending school on a cold day instead of staying home.

Have winter outerwear to share?

Donate your new and gently-used kid’s winter gear now. Winnipeg kids need your help!

Coats (working zipper) • Boots • Ski pants • Mitts • Scarves

United Way Winnipeg's Koats for Kids - Coat Collection Drive

Want to collect coats for kids?

Running a collection drive to gather up gently-used winter gear is a great way to celebrate a birthday, engage your customers, or show your students community spirit.

Just let your friends, guests, customers, students or co-workers know you’re collecting & when they should bring things to you, then drop off your collection.

We’d love to know about your group’s generosity—register your coat drive & be entered to win a gift basket!

United Way Winnipeg's Koats for Kids volunteers make keeping warm possible for Winnipeg's kids.

Want to volunteer?

Imagine 7000+ kg of coats, hats, mitts, scarves, skipants & boots. That’s a lot of sorting, organizing & packaging!

You can join us for a few hours so we can get our packages to kids quickly. Bring a small group of friends or co-workers—or come on your own—and share in Winnipeg’s legendary community spirit. Volunteers must be a minimum of 15 years of age.

Just call 204-586-5628 or email us to set up a volunteer shift at the Koats for Kids Volunteer Centre at 231 King Street.
