Provide approximately 35,000 coats annually to children who don't otherwise have a warm winter coat through Coats for Kids 

Volunteer and provide financial support to 30+ community non-profits


A Christmas Affair hosts approximately 200 vendors in a themed shopping extravaganza which includes parties, children's events, a private shopping brunch, and the season's biggest celebrity: Santa!

Kids in Cool Shoes (KICS) 2018-19



The Kids in Cool Shoes (KICS) program is a brand-new project of The Junior League of Austin to provide area children in need with brand-new, well-fitting sneakers to allow them to be more active and healthy. With the help of KICS, kids won’t have to sit on the sidelines during sports, or rely on too-small, worn-out, or hand-me-down shoes to run and play on the playground. Every kid deserves a pair of shoes that fit!


See sponsorship opportunity details here.

All donations help us reach our goal. Just $20 buys a pair of shoes for one child in need!
$2,000 KICS "Step Up" Sponsor: Underwrite the cost of fitting and distributing 100 pairs of brand new athletic shoes to a local elementary school.
$6,500 KICS "Side-KICS" Sponsor: Underwrite the cost of fitting and distributing 300-350 pairs of brand new athletic shoes to a local elementary school, approximately half of the student body.
