Help Keep Kids Warm this Winter

Winter isn’t a wonderful time for those without warm clothes. During this season, many of us envision winter wonderlands filled with activities like ice skating, skiing, or building snowmen. We're fortunate to have the appropriate gear that makes these outings enjoyable.

Unfortunately, this is not the reality for numerous children enduring bitter cold globally. For those children without the basics such as warm clothes, boots, and coats, winter is far from a wonderland. It becomes a period when they are unable to venture outside, confined to their homes due to threatening cold temperatures.

SEF is partnering with the Special School District to help support students in need of warm winter gear with the Critical Needs Coat Drive. Now through January 5, 2024, your monetary donation can provide those in need with winter coats. No amount is too small as every dollar counts.

Help keep kids across St. Louis County warm this winter. Help make a difference this winter for those students in need. Only monetary donations will be accepted this year to ensure that all needs are met.
