Coat room


To date, 326 kids have received brand new coats donated by generous community members.

The goal of the District’s Warm-A-Kid program is to ensure that no Unit 4 student is without a coat, hat, or gloves during the winter. The program successfully served countless community children and families in meeting their cold weather clothing needs for more than 22 years thanks to the help of generous donors.

The number of low-income households and families in transition continues to grow across the District. Warm-A-Kid is funded solely through donations from the local community. Any gift, however great or small, will make a difference and be remembered for years to come.

Champaign Unit 4 Schools extends a special thank you to those who have consistently supported Warm-A-Kid and been a cornerstone of the program’s success through the years. As with any great cause, seizing the opportunity to make a difference in a child's life requires willing partners who deeply believe in the cause, and demonstrate their belief through their investment.

Throughout the fall and winter, donations in the form of new coats and/or monetary contributions payable to “Unit 4 Schools” can be made at Unit 4’s Family and Community Engagement, located at 703 S. New St., Champaign. All donations are tax-deductible. Please write "winter warmth" in the memo line.

  • Boys - S, M, L, XL and Men's S and M
  • Girls - S, M, L, XL and Women's S, M, and L
