Salvation Army collects 'Coats for Kids' | News
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS)- Can you imagine walking
outside when it's 37 degrees outside and not having a coat to keep you warm?
That's reality for
hundreds of kids in southeast Missouri.
Major Ben Stillwell with
the Salvation Army says he's seeing an alarming trend. Many people who used to
donate coats to the annual coat for kids drive are in need of a warm coat
themselves this year.
Many of you took the time
to help by donating coats, gloves, and scarves and those who took part say it's
a worthy cause.
"There's a lot of
kids, even grownups that don't have enough warm clothes and coats," said
Marge Phillips. "The fact that a lot of people gave, others believe the
same way I do."
The coats collected will be given out during the Salvation Army's
Annual Dinner on Thanksgiving Day.
