Coats for Kids

For the past several years the SLHDA Coat Committee has been able to provide over 20,000 brand new winter coats to the children enrolled in the agency’s Early Learning Programs located in

Lackawanna, Wayne, Pike, and Susquehanna Counties.


Again this year, we are partnering with Macy’s Department Store in order to purchase these coats at a reduced cost. The remaining cost is then covered through the support and generosity of local organizations and businesses as well as individual donations.


For every $20.00 donated, a child will receive a

brand new high-quality winter jacket!

This year our goal is to purchase 1,474 coats for the children in our Early Learning Programs.


Thank you for helping to keep communities warm…one coat at a time!

$100 donation will enter you into a drawing for a chance to win one of the prizes mentioned below.
