QUAKERTOWN, Pa. - A Salvation Army event in upper Bucks County made holiday spirits bright and warm for the winter.

A holiday gathering was held for foster and adoptive families served by the Salvation Army at Swamp Mennonite Church in Quakertown.

The families were treated to breakfast a visit from Santa and a lot more.

About 200 people were given coats for the winter thanks to the annual coat drive carried out by WFMZ-TV in partnership with the Salvation Army.

It all made for a fulfilling day.

"The families are truly amazed. You wouldn't know there are 200 people in that room. The kids are so engaged in activities and just enjoying the time they're spending with their families," said Florence Rhue of the Salvation Army.

The 200 coats handed out are among more than 1,200 collected during this year's WFMZ coat drive.
