Coats For Kids

Coats for Kids is a Worcester Educational Development Foundation initiative to benefit the students of Worcester Public Schools. Coats for Kids provides new winter outerwear to children in need throughout the district which includes 48 schools, the Worcester Head Start program, the Worcester Family Partnership program, and several homeless shelters. Over 3000 winter jackets, hats, and mittens are distributed to infants to high school students annually. In addition, winter outerwear is provided to the Parent Information Center for families arriving from other countries, registering in our schools.Our mission is to foster comfort and confidence in our students in order to increase attendance and participation in school.
