Coats For Kids

The law firm of Manuel & Thompson and WJHG are the proud sponsors of this event in its 14th year.  Coat collection began September 12th this year and will end on October 28th. Last year, Panama City and surrounding areas rose to the occasion and helped us collect over 1,300 coats! But the challenge to gather more coats continues.

Coasts can be dropped by our office on Magnolia Avenue and we welcome any donation. Our mission is to have a coat for every kid that needs one this winter season.

Since its inception in 2002, over 7,500 children’s coats have been collected and distributed.  In 2015, we had an overwhelming response (almost 1,300 coats).  For the first time ever, though, the need exceeded the supply.  The requests for children’s sizes 6 through 10 were overwhelming and will be a large part of our focus for this year’s campaign.
