Thank you for visiting the official site of the Santa Clara Valley Legal Aid Winter Coat Drive. Our goal is to provide at least 2,000 winter coats to local children this year. We believe the new goal is definitely within reach.

If you decide to donate to our cause, every single dollar you give will go toward the purchase of a new winter coat. Not one penny will be spent on administrative costs. We will simply take the grand total of our donations and spend it on new winter coats at local retailers.

Your donation is tax deductible. Even more important, your donation will keep a child warm this winter. What more could you ask?

If we raise $16,000, we will be able to reach our goal of giving 2,000 winter coats to local children this year. Please donate today! (Click here to see how to pay by check.)

Also: Please note that we have been experiencing technical difficulties with some transactions through PayPal (they just won't go through). If this happens to you, please mail a donation to the Winter Coat Fund.
