The 25th Annual Coats For Kids

November 2 – December 11, 2020

“Warming Hearts Since 1995”


HAVAN is launching the 25th annual Coats for Kids campaign on Tuesday, November 10, with a special ‘Drive Through’ edition, in support of the Lower Mainland and Surrey Christmas Bureaus, two groups whose many initiatives help to provide a warmer winter and brighter holiday season for families in need.

The Coats for Kids donation campaign is scheduled to run from Tuesday, November 10 to Friday, December 11. Speaking with the bureaus, this year cash donations are being encouraged, in light of COVID-19, however, all donations will be thankfully received, including new and gently used coats, scarves, gloves, blankets, and new unwrapped toys and gifts for children of all ages. Please note all donations will need to be dropped off pre-bagged.

Last year’s response to Coats for Kids saw Lower Mainland residents donating more than 6,000 items via our 72 drop off locations, across 16 municipalities.

Wrap-up party, special ‘Drive Through’ edition:

Join us on Fri, December 11 at Trail Appliances, Vancouver where we gather to build and present one gigantic donation to the Christmas Bureaus – truly a heart-warming morning. This year amidst a pandemic, the experience will be different, but the spirit will be the same! Drive-through festivities include heavy equipment on display with lights and action, gingerbread station, hot cocoa station, Santa, and more! Stay tuned for more information.
