The Salvation Army recognizes that holidays can bring added financial and emotional stress for families in need. Consequently, we offer a variety of services to help families and individuals make it through more difficult holiday seasons:
Coats for Kids
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 began Oct. 3 and continues for five weeks until Nov. 7.
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.
Besides coats, the collection also is looking for hats, gloves, scarves, snow pants and more.
