During the cold months of December through April, we know that there are kids in the Baton Rouge community that do not have coats, whose parents cannot afford coats, kids that start their day at a bus stop shivering, and kids who enter a school needing time to "warm up" to start their classes.
That is what "Pat's Coats for Kids" is all about and the reason Pat continues to champion the effort. Since its inception more than a million dollars have been received, reflecting 83,000 purchases and distributions to 125 schools. In addition, we have collected more than 197,000 used coats. In 2016 we were able to fulfill the added need because of the horrible floods, by distributing 11,000 coats to children in our area.
Check out our very own BRCVPA Super Stars who recently were part of the WBRZ Pat's Coats for Kids Promotional Commercial. What an awesome experience for our students! Please check out the video, and consider making a donation today!
