Coats For Kids

A Higher Purpose

Councils across North America can purchase new winter coats at a discount to be distributed to the children in need in their local communities. A featured program, Coats for Kids counts for two credits toward the Columbian Award.


Provide warmth for children in need during cold winter months. The goal of the Coats for Kids program is to ensure that no child in North America goes without a coat during the winter season. Through the dedication of councils across the United States and Canada, hundreds of thousands of new winter coats have been distributed to children since program inception.

Coats for Kids is a featured program in Faith in Action. It will earn you double activity credit towards the Columbian Award if you meet the qualifications.
