Koats 4 Kids started as just an idea through conversation. In 2006, it turned into a memorable community event continues to happen each fall. Koats 4 Kids chooses a new low- income school each year and our mission is to provide every child n the school a brand new warm winter coat. Each year our event brings in around 500 coats and winter items.
Our event continues to grow and bring in old friends and a new crowd excited to donate warm coats to children who may otherwise go to school without one. Koats 4 Kids also partners with D-11 Charter School Academy for Advanced and Creative Learning to raise funds through a silent auction and raffle tickets (sold by the volunteers in chicken hats!!) and donates the money for needed items such as playground equipment, after school programs and more.

Koats 4 Kids is very grateful for all the local support of our sponsors including our very first, the Manitou Cliff Dwellings, which continues to be a lead sponsor to honor the late Tom Rogers. This organization was originally co-founded by Jen Furda and Linda Weise and is currently lead by Tom’s daughter, Courtney Olson. Courtney is excited to be a part of Koats 4 Kids and invites the entire community to come keep the tradition alive and the children of Colorado Springs warm!
