It's time for the 7th Annual 'Coats for Kids' drive. With your help, we can decrease the number of students that won't have a coat to wear during the coming winter months.

From Abilene to Eula to Anson and every school in between, there are homeless students in need; many of them unaccompanied.

These kids already have enough going against them, the least we can do is help keep them warm this winter.

This year's coat drive will not only help homeless students in Abilene, but other surrounding school districts as well.

Please help by donating a gently used or a new coat. We need all sizes, from age 3 to 18. Monetary donations will be used to purchase new coats, so please give generously.

While we are accepting donations of "gently used" coats, we'd like to ask you to consider a monetary donation or that of a new coat. This will limit any potential spread of Covid-19. 

However, if a used coat is donated, we will make sure it is cleaned properly before giving to a student in need.

This year's drive will be October 19th-November 13th.

Currently, we're only accepting donations at our studios (information listed below), but may add other donation locations later - so please check back often.

We're needing approximately 2,000 coats for the combined schools participating in the Coats for Kids drive. Please donate generously. These kids depend on it.
