The UHC – Hub of Opportunities has been running the Coats for Kids program since 2002 and provides families with over 6000 warm winter coats annually. Throughout the pandemic, the program has adapted to keep serving those in need. As the temperatures begin to drop, no child should have to brace the cold without the proper attire. Winter coats, hats, and gloves are basic human necessities. Many individuals may struggle to provide these necessities for their families and turn to organizations like the UHC for help. Both Cintas, UHC, and volunteers work together to provide children with warm, clean, and affordable coats, hats, leggings, and mittens that allow them to thrive during the cold months.
