Warm a Child for Winter 2021



Join Women of Colors for our annual winter coat giveaway! This year’s Warm a Child for Winter will take place as a drive-thru event on Saturday, November 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

WOC started the WACFW initiative in 2017. The event was originally a collaboration with a business owner who brought the idea to our organization. We embraced the idea and have been hosting the event every year since! Our coat and winter clothing drive has now been running successfully for five years.

Thanks to the help of many, many donors and volunteers, WOC has given away 3,200 coats in past years! The most rewarding part about putting on this event for us is seeing the smiles on children’s faces as they receive warm clothing and get the opportunity to meet Santa!

What types and sizes of winter clothing will be available?

We will have coats for all children from newborn to age 16 as well as hats, scarves, gloves, other winter clothing, and household items. Clothing is sized between newborn and size 18.
