We had a very successful 10 Year Celebration Golf Outing on October 22!  All proceeds are being used to purchase NEW coats for local children in need. We are currently working on our details for those purchases. If you would still like to donate, please message us!! We can also get collection boxes out to you if you are interested in hosting a site or in house collection. Thank you for 10 years of support!!

The mission of Makenzie's Coat Closet is to ensure that the less fortunate have a means to ensure that they have a coat to keep themselves warm. Every coat donated is given away free of charge to anyone that needs assistance.

Started as a seven year old's mission to keep the less fortunate warm.
