'Coats for Kids' drive receives over 37,000 coats

KVUE and our partners have been collecting coats in the Austin area for the 'Coats for Kids' drive for 32 years.

AUSTIN — This was the thirty-second year for the annual Coats for Kids drive -- and this year, we received over 37,000 coats!

Every November and December, KVUE asks viewers to donate their coats, which are cleaned by Jack Brown Cleaners, where employees have to put in extra hours to make sure each coat is dry cleaned.

Albert Ramon, Erika Lopez and Nathan Gogo spent Saturday morning at the Palmer Events Center handing out some of the coats.

Jack Brown Cleaners and KVUE, with our partners The Junior League of Austin and KVET Radio, collected over 36,000 coats for children in Central Texas last year.

We want to extend a big "thank you" to everyone in the community who helped out!
