This event will celebrate a decade of commitment to outfitting low-income Boston children and youth with brand new winter coats each year. Since first launched in 2009, this program has helped prepare nearly 18,000 kids in Boston for the winter season.
The event will be a kickoff for the 2019 Coat Boston
program that will include an afternoon of celebration, live music, and fundraising at Bella Luna & The Milky Way in Jamaica Plain. Proceeds will allow these coats to continue to be provided to Boston children into the future. Our goal this year is 2,000 brand new coats, hats, and gloves.
The overarching goal of Coat Boston is to help children whose families have limited resources attend school regularly, arrive warm and ready to learn, to enjoy playing outside in cold weather, and to let them know that Boston cares about them.
