Coats 4 Kids is an annual program created by Colvin Cleaners. This program allows Buffalo's favorite dry cleaner to give back to the community in a way that WNYorkers desperately need -- by giving the gift of warmth. Colvin Cleaners, along with other partners, collects winter garments from all collection locations, schools, churches and many businesses.
COVID-19 has impacted Coats 4 Kids. Instead of our traditional distribution events, we will be partnering with nonprofits in WNY to distribute items to families in need.
