The holiday season is all about giving, and what better way to show your spirit than to give a child the gift of warmth. There's no better feeling than knowing you've helped someone in need. With the winter season threatening freezing temperatures, JBGoodwin REALTORS® will be participating in the community drive called Coats for Kids for the 19th consecutive year. This organization, created by the Junior League of Austin, collects coats from all over Central Texas to donate to children in need. We have been partaking in the wonderful cause for many years and will be continuing this Austin tradition this year.
Coats For Kids is one of the largest coat drives in the nation and has been helping to keep children warm for 29 years. This event not only provides outerwear for children, but it also offers the opportunity for families to access local resources at the onsite community fair, held at The Palmer Events Center.
Lending A Hand
JBGoodwin REALTORS® has been collecting coats to contribute for over 18 years and looks forward to donating and distributing to the kids of Austin again this year. Last year, we were able to donate about 480 coats total! Overall, the organization distributed over 35,000 coats to kids and the organization would like to exceed that goal this year.
Providing a warm winter coat for children in need will be a gift you remember giving for the rest of your life. We encourage everyone to purchase a coat for a child, bring it to our office for donation, or distribute it on December 12th at The Palmer Events Center between 8 am-3 pm. If you can contribute, the coat drive runs every day until December 4th.
Those who are not able to donate, but would still like to register to volunteer, can absolutely do so before December 11th. Coats For Kids can be reached at 512-467-8982 for those interested in lending a hand.
Help JBGoodwin REALTORS® keep kids warm this winter by donating new children's coats or volunteering for the cause. After all, it's the season of giving, and the greatest gift is a warm heart.
