A staggering 1 in 5 children in Allen County live in poverty.
Families are working hard to make ends meet but many remain unable to provide basic needs for their children. That means every winter kids in our community are cold because they don’t have coats, hats, scarves, and gloves.
You can help change this. Share warmth this winter.
Please join us at Levitate’s Coats & Cocktails to help provide a coat for every child in need in our community. The event benefits the Coats for Kids program in Allen County.
Thursday, November 17
3 – 6 pm
803 Calhoun St, Third Floor
Fort Wayne, IN 46802
We’ll provide the cocktails — and bubbly and beers and snacks and treats, you bring the coat or donation. A $25 donation provides a child with a coat, scarf, hat, and gloves. Please bring monetary donations or donate online here. New and gently used winter weight coats will be collected at the event.
Coats for Kids
Since 1999 the Volunteer Center has been organizing the Coats for Kids program in Allen County focused on collecting donations and providing warmth to every child in need. In total, over 80,000 coats have been distributed through Coats for Kids in the Greater Fort Wayne community.
