(WBNG) -- Throughout the month of November, people in the region could donate new or gently-used jackets to "Coats for Kids" at several local businesses.
After the drive came to an end, Bates Troy cleaned all the coats that were collected. They were then donated to the Family Enrichment Network and distributed to local families.
Bates Troy tells 12 News that 1,275 coats were collected this year. That's down from 2,500 last year.
WBNG is a proud sponsor of the event. We'd like to thank all of you who donated to help keep families warm this winter.
