Coats for Community

The third annual United Way KFL&A Coat Drive is back! 
As you begin to change over your closets for the winter, please consider donating your new or gently used winter outwear to Coats for Community.  
Coats must be washable only; no leather or heavy wool. 

Agencies have seen a 25 to 30 per cent increase in clients needing their services and with that comes increased demand for items like winter coats.

As in past years, larger sizes are in high demand and community members are also encouraged to donate funds, if they can, to help purchase coats. Donations can be made by clicking the button below

Once collected, volunteers will sort and distribution will be through agencies serving people in vulnerable circumstances (list below)
