Cayla’s Coats

Cayla’s Coats was started in memory of Jessica’s daughter Cayla Barnes. Cayla sadly drowned one afternoon in the waters of Homosassa at the age of one.

Their mission is to help spread the word of drowning prevention, as well as provide coats to the children of Citrus County. All coats that are collected are tagged and delivered to the elementary, middle and high schools within our county. The coats are then distributed to the students that are in need.

Last year Cayla’s Coats donated over 1,000 coats to students in our county. This year Cayla’s Coats are partnering with Nature Coast EMS to collect blankets to donate to the elderly population in our county.

For more information of Cayla’s Coats or to make a donation, please visit their website at and follow them on Facebook at .
