We want to say a very special thank you to the Coat Angels! The children sheltered at CCO have been blessed with the gift of warmth thanks to this fabulous group of volunteers and donors! Each year the Coat Angels visit CCO and deliver new coats, hats, gloves, and other winter wear accessories to our children. Thank you, Coat Angels!

The Coat Angels motto is, “For every coat we buy, a child will be warm this winter.” It’s a simple and true statement. The goal of the Coat Angels is not only to make children warm but to make them feel special. They have certainly achieved their goal and we are grateful!
With the cold weather nearly here, the Coat Angels have visited CCO once again! The Angels came through with brand new coats, jackets, gloves, scarves, and hats for the families sheltered at CCO. The children were able to choose from a variety of sizes and colors. The Coat Angels have provided essential winter wear and in doing so they have brought joy and encouragement to our families experiencing homelessness. Thank you for warming our hearts, Coat Angels!
We want to say a special thank you to Devin Escue, who took pictures of the children with their new winter gear. Devin has actively supported CCO throughout his teenage years. He has taken photographs for our Fall Frenzy, provided playground equipment through his Eagle Scout project, served meals at our Annual Veteran’s Recognition Dinner, and has baked many of the birthday cakes that are given to the children sheltered at CCO. What a guy! Thanks, Devin!
The Coat Angels visited Cornerstone Community Outreach once again and brought new fleece, coats, hats, and gloves for all of the children sheltered with the families. A huge variety of colors and style were available for the children to choose from. The Coat Angels made sure that the sizing was right for each child. Parents and children were so excited to have a new, warm, colorful coat to wear for throughout the cold Chicago winter.
One little girl was so pleased with her coat that she didn’t take it off until bedtime. When she woke up the next morning she immediately put it back on and wore her treasured coat for the entire day!
Thank you Coat Angels for contributing to the lives of the children sheltered at CCO with such a practical, yet thoughtful gift!
