CTV Winnipeg Contests

CTV and United Way Winnipeg kick off the annual Koats for Kids drive

For 30 years, CTV and United Way Winnipeg's Koats for Kids program has helped thousands of Winnipeg kids stay warm and toasty over the winter months. Our young people need warm winter apparel, so they can attend school and participate in outdoor winter activities.

Now open for the season, Winnipeggers can drop off new or gently used outerwear for infants, children, and youth at any Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Station or Access Storage location, or the AMJ Campbell office. Items that can be donated: new or gently used winter jackets, ski pants, hats, scarves, mittens, and boots.

For a complete list of drop off locations, visit or click on the link to the right.

Thanks to the generosity of Winnipeggers, 36,000 articles of clothing were donated to Koats for Kids in 2018, with 326 volunteers sorting donations, mending coats and ski pants, and delivering winter gear to schools, daycares, and agencies throughout Winnipeg.

Special thanks to the Koats for Kids partners: Winnipeg Sun, Bell MTS, Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service, AMJ Campbell, Holiday Inn Winnipeg Airport West, Perth's Motel 6, Access Storage, and PUPS Containers.
