‘Coats for Acadiana’ Drive Accepting Donations for Community Impact


When local military units began the drive many years ago, they envisioned each child in Acadiana having the necessary clothing to keep them warm. Thanks to your overwhelming support, the program has far surpassed those expectations.

But there’s more to the story. Each year, Acadiana generously donates at least 25-hundred coats…. sometimes as many as five thousand… for children & adults. The knights decided to share that generosity with all the less fortunate.

Feel free to donate coats, light jackets, hoodies, scarves, gloves… any clothing that helps keep you warm. The more they receive, the more they are able to give.
