For 35 years Pat’s Coats for Kids has provided a warm jacket to children in our community. What was only $20 to give a kid a new coat in the proper size is now $25.

During the cold months of December through April, we know that there are kids in the Baton Rouge community that do not have coats, whose parents cannot afford coats, kids that start their day at a bus stop shivering, and kids who enter a school needing time to "warm up" to start their classes.  

That is what "Pat's Coats for Kids" is all about and the reason Pat continues to champion the effort. Since its inception more than a million dollars have been received, reflecting in close to 280,000 coats purchased and distributed to 135 area schools. In addition, we have collected more than 200,500 used coats. In 2022 we were able to fulfill the need in our community by distributing 6,500 coats to children in our area.  

WBRZ would like to thank our sponsors; Coldwell Banker One, Raising Cane's, Home Bank, and the Baton Rouge Clinic for all their generous support. The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Council of Baton Rouge and PODS also help to make Pat’s Coats for Kids a success year after year.
