Coats For Kids

1,780 coats were distributed to Milwaukee area children and adults in 2020.

About

The Salvation Army's Coats for Kids program provides coats and winter accessories to children in Milwaukee. All winter coats are donated and collected in collaboration with FOX6 News.

Coats are picked up at various drop-off sites throughout the city by the donated services of Bonded Transportation Solutions. Then they are delivered to The Salvation Army where they are sorted by community volunteers and made ready for cleaning through the donated services of ITU.
