In October of each year, Moncton Headstart asks the community at-large to donate gently used or new coats, snowsuits, hats, mittens, scarves, and boots for children of all ages, newborn to adolescent. All are cleaned and prepared to give to children in need on a Saturday morning, typically early in November.
There are usually 300 to 400 children who receive winter wear from Coats for Kids.
Coats for Kids 2021 provided winter coats to over 800 children.
Thank you to all our supporters!
Coats for Kids wouldn’t be nearly as successful without the countless individual donations that are being made year after year. Thank you so much for all your help! Outstanding contributions to the Coats for Kids program are made by
