Worcester Public Schools

The COATS FOR KIDS PROGRAM provides new winter outerwear, hats and gloves to children in need in the Worcester Public Schools.


The #1 way to break the cycle of poverty is through education. For a child, a new winter coat can be so much more than just warmth. It can foster self-esteem and confidence, can inspire happiness and improve peer acceptance, school attendance and over-all wellness. It tells a child, “You’re worth it!” Keeping children healthy and warm throughout the cold harsh New England winter months can change lives!
