Celebrating its 26th anniversary, Coats for Kids is an annual community project that collects and distributes warm winter coats to eligible children and teenagers in Central Texas.
Each year, KVUE, The Junior League of Austin, Jack Brown Cleaners, and KASE 101 partner to bring the community together to ensure that the children of Central Texas stay warm.
Along with the help of 2,600 community volunteers, last year Coats for Kids distributed 33,500 new and gently used coats.
