Coats for Kids

For over 30 years, the VOCM Cares Coats for Kids Campaign has helped keep thousands of families warm during the Winter season. As the cold weather approaches, you can help be there for those in need by donating gently used or new winter wear from September 30 – October 30.

Winter items including coats, hats, mittens, and boots for both youth and adults are greatly appreciated. Please no broken zippers, soiled, or torn items, or out-of-season clothing. This is important for the safety and strength of the program.

Please ensure you are following important COVID-19 measures when donating items, including wearing a mask at drop-off locations, social distancing and sanitizing and/or washing hands before and after handling items, as well as providing NL Vax pass information where required.
