Koats for Kids 

November 4, 2017
(Date for 2018  has not been selected yet)

“Koats for Kids” is a community service of the Boys and Girls Club of London with area businesses and service clubs acting as partners in this very worthwhile undertaking – to ensure that every child is warm in the winter! Members of the Horton Street Seniors’ Centre, Club staff, students and community volunteers help distribute new or gently used coats and winter apparel in good condition of any size. One coat will be given to each child free of charge while quantities last. Identification will be required for each individual receiving a coat. Children don't have to be present to receive a coat but proper identification is required. There is no registration for this program. In late September and early October, we start our appeal to the public. We ask them to drop off the winter apparel at the Club or at any of participating drop-off locations consisting of local businesses, organizations, schools throughout the city. Help us ensure every child and youth is warm for the winter!
Should you have any questions, please contact Christina Yung at 519-434-9115 ext. 241 or cyung@bgclondon.ca  

Koats for Kids has ended for 2017 but there are still lots of families in need. Please donate if you can. We will do our best to keep this list updated.

During the 12 Days of Christmas event, over 1,800 children are treated to a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings along with a small gift. We invite you to contribute and become a sponsor for one of the twelve nights of holiday meals. Sponsorship includes the opportunity for you, your family, friends or your staff to volunteer together for one night and help us serve the meal and celebrate the festive season with the kids.
