Give a Kid a Coat

The Coat Program began in 1984 when approximately 30 children were provided with winter coats. The program has since grown into a program serving entire families in Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties. Each October, we hold a clothing drive and provide gently used coats and other winter accessories, and warm clothing for adults and children. We also provide new blankets for children at Thanksgiving.
