Today’s big launch marks the 25th year Koats for Kids has collected warm winter outerwear and shared it with children all over Winnipeg.
Last year you generously donated over 16,000 pounds of coats, mitts, toques and scarves—and all of it got put to use warming hands so kids could enjoy winter play and be warm enough to get to school.
“We believe we can make a difference,” Principal Hussey said to the assembled students, and she’s absolutely right. Every donation finds it way somewhere very important—to a kid who needs to keep warm.
You can take your donations of gently used children’s winter outwear to any Perths location and any of the city’s 30 WFPS fire station until the end of February. We’re very grateful for and inspired by your support.
If you need a coat this year, you can request one here.
Thanks to everyone involved; to our partners:
and a special shoutout to Modular Storage for the loan of several storage containers.
