Pat's Coats for Kids Coat Drive

Pat's Coats WBRZ


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 83,000 purchases and distributions to 125 schools. In addition, WBRZ has collected more than 197,000 used coats. In 2016 they were able to fulfill the added need because of the horrible floods, by distributing 11,000 coats to children in our area.

For a donation of only $20, a new, high-quality coat can be purchased for a child in need in our capital area. Encourage family, friends and co-workers to contribute what they can.
