The Coats for Kids drive is collecting coats, gently used and new, to get into the hands of families in need – warm winter coats for their children. This is the 27th annual drive, cosponsored by Dove, Inc., and WAND-TV. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to make a donation of a coat. Coats of all sizes may be dropped off at the following locations, through November 30.
