COATS FOR KIDS

Why coats?

  • Children can’t regulate their body temperatures like adults can, so they can quickly develop hypothermia without protection from the cold
  • Before the pandemic, one in five children in America was living in poverty
  • Approximately 200,000 people die from the cold each year
  • This year’s goal is 1,000 coats!
  • You can give a coat anytime between Sept. 24 and Oct. 21.

The Biggest Needs?

  • There is a critical need for adult-sized coats
  • Many of the upper elementary, middle school, and high school students PATH serves need adult-sized coats
  • Last year PATH did not have enough coats to meet the needs of these children and teenagers
