34th Coats for Kids drive under way through Nov. 14
MID-MICHIGAN (WJRT) - The 34th annual Coats for Kids drive in Mid-Michigan is under way.
ABC12 and WIOG are partnering with the Salvation Army to collect coats and cold weather gear to help keep needy children warm this winter. The collection continues until Nov. 14.
Last year, hundreds of children benefited from the annual coat and winter gear drive. The Salvation Army anticipates a greater need this year.
Look for Coats for Kids collection boxes are now out in a variety of malls, coffee shops, hospitals, banks, credit unions, and other businesses throughout the region. A full list is available at the end of this story.
The Salvation Army is collecting all sizes of coats. The most asked for coat sizes are adult medium to XXL, as many children wear the larger sizes. Besides coats, the collection also is looking for hats, gloves, scarves, snow pants and more.
Families that need something warm are asked to contact or visit the Salvation Army office in their home county to sign up for assistance.
