You might think having a warm winter coat is a given, but not everyone has one. WFMZ-TV wants to change that!
Drop boxes will be set up at the PPL Center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the WFMZ Gate at 7th and Hamilton streets. Then, from 5 to 7 p.m. we'll have staff collecting coats at the same location, plus a drop-off lane on Hamilton Street before the Lehigh Valley Phantoms game.
Coats will be cleaned by JC Cleaners, then donated to the The Salvation Army Children's Services: Foster Care & Adoption Program and other Salvation Army programs.
Last year, we collected more than 1,200 coats and we would love to do it again. Help us keep everyone warm this winter!
