Help Keep Our Kids Warm. Donate a coat.

There are children in the Greater Des Moines area who simply don't have a warm winter coat. We want to make sure that all of our area children are warm and safe on their way to school and on the playground.

You can help two ways:

Make a cash donation here. We'll use the funds to purchase coats to get even more coats to more kids. Cash donations also help us fill in the gaps for the sizes and genders that are not donated often. OR

Drop off a new or gently used coat at one of the locations below by Oct. 25. We'll take care of getting the coats to the kids in our communities that need them most. Please note: Sizes 4/5 through 3XL, in both genders, will be accepted, but coats for high school students are especially needed.

We are thrilled with the kindness shown to metro area kids through donations to Keeping Our Kids Warm. We just received a nice donation from a local company that wishes to remain anonymous. Perhaps your department would get a warm feeling from keeping kids shiver-free this winter? Take up a collection!
