Collecting Coats For Kids
October 04, 2013 3:54 PM
KDLT News is partnering with the Salvation Army this month, helping children and adults stay warm this winter.
It’s all part of ‘Coats For Kids,’ which is a clothing drive to get new and gently-used coats in the hands of those who don’t have them.
There are boxes set up inside Lewis Drug Stores in Sioux Falls and Brandon. You can also bring coats directly to the Salvation Army.
“We see so many people really trying to make it but most of the income is just for housing, utilities and food. There’s just not much left over,” said Maj. Betty Bender with The Salvation Army.
More than 900 coats were donated last year. Those in need can stop by The Salvation Army to sign up for a coat through December 1.
