FOR EVERY COAT WE BUY, A CHILD WILL BE WARM THIS WINTER.
FOR EVERY COAT WE DON'T BUY, A CHILD WILL BE COLD. IT IS TRULY THAT SIMPLE.
How Coat Angels works is simple, too. Each year, we collect names from teachers and social workers at schools in neighborhoods facing devastating poverty rates.Then we host fundraisers and collect contributions from generous individuals and businesses. With the money we raise, our all-volunteer team shops sales anddiscount – stores and works with our retail partner, then bags and personally delivers coats, fleeces, hats and gloves to some of the neediest children in Chicago. Coat Angels receives far more requests than we can fill, so every donation of money or time is meaningful, appreciated and makes a huge and immediate difference in the life of a child. We invite you to explore the site, and learn how you can help ensure that no child goes cold this winter.
