Get free taco and coffee by donating to 2019 Coats for Kids drive

KVUE and partners have been collecting coats in the Austin area for the Coats for Kids drive for 33 years. Here's you can help out in 2019.

AUSTIN, Texas — The annual coat drive, Coats for Kids, has been providing warm coats to the Austin area for over 30 years.

Every November and December, KVUE asks viewers to donate their coats, which are dry cleaned by Jack Brown Cleaners.

Wednesday is the last day to donate coats, which is why Rudy's on Research Boulevard is offering a free voucher for a taco and small coffee to anyone who donates a coat, while supplies last or until 9 a.m.

Jack Brown Cleaners and KVUE, with partners The Junior League of Austin and KVET Radio, collect more than 30,000 coats for children in Central Texas every year.

This year, the Junior League said the goal is to collect 34,000 coats. As of Wednesday morning, more than 31,000 coats had already been collected. 

Click here to donate as little as $20 for a child’s winter coat, or drop by KVUE at 3201 Steck Ave. or any Jack Brown Cleaners location from Nov. 4 to Dec.4 with a winter coat. 

Amazon has a wish list for Coats for Kids. The list is searchable under "Coats for Kids Wish List."
