The 28th Coats for Kids & Families starts October 3rd!

September 30, 2022 11:59 pm

Collecting warm winter coats for children and adults Oct 3 – Jan 8

Withing rising inflation families are struggling more than ever to make ends meet. We need your help to provide these local families with something many of us often take for granted: a warm winter coat.

In 1995, Anton’s Cleaners created Coats for Kids & Families to leverage the business and support the local communities we serve.

The program has since grown considerably, partnering with Enterprise Bank and Jordan’s Furniture expanding our efforts and outreach to support the program’s mission, “Anyone who needs a coat will have one.”

We are also excited to welcome back long-standing promotional partners: Boston 25 and iHeart Radio: KISS 108, JAM’N 94.45, 101.7 The Bull, and 1030 WBZ.

Since the program began, we have collected, cleaned, and distributed 1,180,839 warm winter coats, with an associated cleaning value of $17,830,260, free of charge.

Coats for Kids & Families collects, cleans, and distributes nearly 50,000 warm winter coats to children and individuals in need on an annual basis. This wouldn’t be possible without the support of our partners and community who come together for one common cause.

Collected coats are distributed through a network of local social service agencies, schools, nonprofits, and church groups, among many other approved partners.

We need your support!

The success of Coats for Kids & Families relies on the generous donations of our customers and the community.
