The event will be held from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 27 at Howard Futch Park, 2301 N. Highway A1A, in Indialantic.

Breakfast will be provided and served by Cub Scout Pack 772 from Palm Bay.

The breakfast will also serve as the kickoff for the 3rd annual Coats for Kids drive, a countywide initiative to combat the growing problem of children without winter coats.

During the previous two drives, more than 2,000 coats were collected for Brevard children in need.

The Coats for Kids drive will run through Dec. 1. This year, only new coats will be collected for school-age children in kindergarten through 12th grades.

All Brevard County libraries are drop-off locations and residents can give the coats to the employees at the front desk.

Donated coats also will be accepted at the breakfast.

This year’s drive will benefit Brevard Family Partnership, a private nonprofit organization under contract with the Florida Department of Children and Families. It is the lead child welfare agency in Brevard County.

Brevard Family Partnership manages abuse prevention services, as well as adoptions for children permanently removed from their homes, foster care and transitional services for youth who age out of foster care without being adopted.

It currently has more than 850 children under its care.
