You may not be thinking about winter, but in a couple months, some kids will be struggling to stay warm. There are local families who may not be able to afford a coat for their child.

That’s where you come in. Your generosity could bring warmth and comfort to a child living in your neighborhood.

We are teaming up with River Valley AgCredit once again for our Coats for Kids campaign. We are collecting new or gently used, clean coats for children in need.

You can drop off a coat at any of the locations listed below by October 22.

This year we are also accepting new masks as well as coats. Every mask and coat you donate will be distributed to local children in need.

Your kindness can make a difference for a child this winter.

Keep Warm, Mask Up!

Drop off new or cleaned, gently used coats and children’s masks from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the television station. This is a one day event.
