The Coats for Kids campaign is an annual event sponsored by the Knights of Columbus.

The campaign allows Knights of Columbus councils across North America the opportunity to purchase new winter coats for children at a discount and to distribute them to children in need in their local communities.

Since the program began in 2009, more than 306,000 coats have been distributed nationwide.
