Warm the Children

The Warm the Children program provides warm coats for children under the age of 18 that meet financial need requirements. This program runs from October to December or until funds are exhausted. Old Saybrook Rotary provides this service for the towns of Westbrook, Old Saybrook and Old Lyme.

If you are a Westbrook family in need of extra support this year, please contact WYFS for a referral to the program.


Thanks to donations from Essex/Westbrook Lions Club and Essex Financial Services, WYFS has some limited funding available for coats for kids.

This year WYFS will also be accepting clean, very gently-loved children’s coats looking for a new owner. Children’s coat donations only please. We will distribute these coats to families as the coats become available in the fall.
