Coats for Kids

The Children’s Charities Foundation has distributed brand new winter coats to more than 18,000 children from (30) thirty local charities and community organizations in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area valued at more than $540,000.

CCF will distribute an additional 4,000 coats by December 2018.


Charities are selected in advance so that each child receives an appropriate size coat. Money to purchase the coats are raised at the Children’s Charities Foundation Gala, and local BB&T Branches throughout the Greater Washington Region.

Last year we provided coats to the 2,000 reported homeless children in D.C. along with thousands more in Northern Virginia and neighboring Maryland counties.

The kid’s coat giveaway is in its seventh year and is one of hundreds of projects the Foundation has funded that offers help to at risk and disadvantage youth. Along with CCF, the D.C. Children’s Trust Fund was instrumental in identifying local organizations serving children in need of a suitable winter coat.
