Giving brand new coats to children in need since 1998

Help a Child

More than 15 million children - nearly 1 in 5 kids - live in poverty in the United States.

How We Help Them

Our Mission

We provide brand new winter coats to children in need, helping improve self-confidence, peer acceptance, school attendance, and overall wellness—because we believe a new winter coat can provide more than just warmth.

Our Brand New Coats

A brand new winter coat tells a child, “You’re worth it.” By making our own coats, we control the quality and style to ensure our coats become a daily source of pride and joy for children in need.

How We're Different
