cropped-headerThe successful clothes drive for local children in need is back again for its fourth year; Rotaract | SLO is proud to organize the Coats for Kids drive during the month of October. Similar to Toys For Tots, coat collection stations will be set up throughout San Luis Obispo County at local businesses, schools, banks, and churches to collect gently worn or new jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, and coats, which will be collected and donated to local charities around San Luis Obispo County.

Rotaract | SLO coordinates the Coats for Kids campaign every year during the fall in preparation for the looming winter as children and families around the Central Coast are in need of warmth. In order to donate your coats, please visit our Facebook page,, or our website,, for a complete list of drop off locations.

The Coats for Kids drive was started four years ago by Rotaract | SLO members, as they saw the need to keep families of our Central Coast warm throughout the winter months. Rotaract | SLO wanted to initiate a charitable drive that had a long-term impact on children and families; therefore, Coats for Kids was born, in the hope that these coats will last the duration of not only this winter but also multiple cold winters. This year’s Rotaract team is continuing the tradition here on the Central Coast.
