COATS FOR KIDS
Find out how you can change or save a life by giving something as simple as a coat!
Why coats for kids?
- 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
