Coats Needed for Annual Coat Drive

Provide a New Coat for the Children at The Child and Family Network Centers

Keep a child warm this winter!

40 Preschoolers need YOUR help keeping warm this winter!

Thanks to The Child & Family Network Centers (CFNC) coat drive, 96 coats have already been collected for for the 136 children who need them. That means we only need 40 more!

To help, sign up here to give a child a new coat for the winter. The CFNC coat drive coordinator will assign you a child and send you the child’s first name, gender, coat size and favorite color, along with instructions for dropping off your coat.

Donated coats should be NEW for school and easy to run around and play in.

New coat donations will be accepted through November 15th and will be distributed directly to the CFNC children.
