Coats for Kids

Together, we ensure no local child in need
faces the cold winter without a warm coat.

In 2020, The Salvation Army of Greater Green Bay Distributed 2,063 Coats to Children in Need.

Coats for Kids

Our annual Coats for Kids program collects and distributes nearly 3,000 warm coats for local kids in need. This Seasonal Assistance program exist due to the generosity of the Greater Green Bay community. It is through donations from individuals, churches, businesses and foundations that we are able to offer this assistance to individuals and families in need. The Salvation Army is deeply thankful for the many partners who help us make these programs possible and to the many volunteers who assist us in the registration and distributions for these programs.
