The Kids

Coat Angels' goal isn't only to keep kids warm, it's to make them feel special, to give them a sense of worth. That's why we personally deliver all the clothes we buy. Meeting the kids, interacting with them and watching their faces as they try on coats, fleeces, hats and gloves that are often the only new items of clothing they own… it's a moving and indelible experience.

The children often write us wonderful, heart-warming & heart-breaking thank you notes. In a letter from our first year, one child called us "Coat Angels", giving us our name.

Their letters provide a look into the lives of the kids we serve and remind us how a seemingly small gesture can mean the world to a child in need.
