Coats for Kids

The Children’s Charities Foundation has distributed brand new winter coats to more than 14,000 children from (30) thirty local charities and community organizations in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Charities were 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 BasketBALL Gala, the BB&T Classic basketball tournament, and local BB&T Branches throughout the Mid-Atlantic.

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.

If you would like to host a community service project to raise funds to purchase coats for children in the area please contact us at

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.
