We're getting ready for another winter blast by collecting warm, winter outwear for children and youth in our community.

Thank you for helping kids and youth keep warm this winter!

With your support last year, we provided just over 1,000 children and youth in London and area with winter coats so that they can continue to learn, grow, and play.

We hope that you will consider giving again this season. Financial donations are much appreciated and there are other ways you can help.

  • Organize a coat drive in your neighbourhood or in your business/building.
  • Share the message and help spread the word that we're collecting donations of new and gently used winter outerwear.
  • Volunteer - limited volunteer opportunities are available between now and November 1st, 2021. (Please note that volunteers must provide proof of vaccination for COVID-19 in order to volunteer. For more information, please refer to the Ontario government's website here.)
