Thousands of coats donated to Coats for Kids

KATV, Hangers Cleaners, and the Watershed is wrapping up the Coats for Kids drive.

More than 4,000 new and gently used coats are headed to people who are in need of them this winter. Hangers general manager Scott Hailey says this year's number is a 30 percent increase over last year.

"Many of our customers, good folks of Arkansas, have donated," Hailey said. "We clean the coats and deliver them to the Watershed. They do so much charity work all year. Now they can pass out a few extra coats."

Hailey says Hangers plans to make the final drop off to the Watershed this week.
