How to donate to the 2022 Coats for Kids drive

It’s the 36th year for the annual event.

AUSTIN, Texas — As temperatures are getting cooler, many of us will start grabbing for that jacket to keep warm. We all know that weather in Texas can be unpredictable, so the need for a coat could happen at any time.

Unfortunately, many children across Central Texas don’t have access to a warm winter coat.

That’s why KVUE, a long-standing partner of Coats for Kids for 36 years, is teaming up again with the Junior League of Austin, Jack Brown Cleaners and KVET in the effort to give more than 30,000 winter coats to Central Texas children in need during this year’s drive, which goes until Dec. 7.

We are accepting coat donations at any Jack Brown Cleaners across Central Texas. You can also donate a monetary gift by texting GIVEATX to 243725. Just $20 buys a new winter coat, but any amount donated is helpful. You can donate here: 2022 Coats for Kids Donations

Distribution of the coats will take place from Dec. 1 through Dec. 10, where we plan to distribute our one-millionth coat!
