Winter’s coming: Kids need coats

Wednesday, November 16, 2022 by Tai Moses

The Junior League of Austin is revving up its annual coat drive for kids who don’t have enough warm clothes to see them through the winter. The goal this year – the 36th annual event – is to provide 30,000 warm coats for children in need in Central Texas. You can donate $20 to buy a new coat or visit the registry to purchase a coat for the drive. Those who would like to donate new or gently used coats may drop off the items at any Jack Brown Cleaners location or at the Junior League at 5330 Bluffstone Lane through Dec. 7. The coats will be distributed through Dec. 10. Find out more about the coat drive here.
