Join the Junior League of Austin, Jack Brown Cleaners, KVET, and KVUE on their mission to keep kids warm this winter by supporting the 31st Annual Coats for Kids program. At Distribution Day on December 9, volunteers help kids find coats that are just right for them. This year, an estimated 34,000 warm winter coats will be given to the children of Central Texas. Whether they’re looking to be pretty in purple, bold in blue or fabulous in fuchsia there’s a coat for everyone.

Donate coats! Gently used coats, to be given on Distribution Day, will be accepted at any Jack Brown Cleaners from November 13th to November 29th. To find a Jack Brown Cleaners near you visit

Don’t have a coat to donate? Don’t worry! You can still help by donating your time or by making a monetary donation. Monetary donations will go towards buying new coats for Distribution Day and can be made online here.

Thank you for doing your part to keep kids warm!
