For 31 years Pat’s Coats for Kids has provided a warm jacket to children in our community. It takes only $20 to give a kid a new coat in the proper size.
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 260,000 coats purchased and distributed to 125 area schools. In addition, we have collected more than 200,000 used coats. In 2018 we were able to fulfill the need in our community by distributing 8,000 coats to children in our area.
WBRZ would like to thank our sponsors; Coldwell Banker One, Entergy, Neighbors Federal Credit Union, 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.
