'Coats for Kids' returns in 2021 to help keep central Indiana children warm

Donate any new or gently used kids coats at any Classic Cleaners.

INDIANAPOLIS — The COVID-19 pandemic has made life difficult for lots of families across central Indiana.

Now, more than ever, WTHR's Coats for Kids needs your help!

Starting Sept. 1, donate new or gently used kids coats, sized infant to teen, to any Classic Cleaners location. The donation period is now closed.

The annual Coats for Kids coat drive helps the Salvation Army keep children across central Indiana warm.

Last year, thousands of coats were distributed to Hoosier families at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.

Registration to receive a coat this year is now closed.

This program is for children 0-17 (18 if your child is still in school). Your child must be present in order to receive a coat.

Volunteers are still needed for Coats for Kids set-up week (Oct. 11-15) and distribution day (Oct. 16). This is a great opportunity for corporate groups, churches, and service clubs to give back before the busy holiday season. Visit SalvationArmyIndiana.org/Volunteer to get involved.
