BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- WBNG and the community has helped families across the Southern Tier stay warm for many winters by collecting coats for children.

However, there’s many behind the scenes and unsung heros who take part in the drive.

BatesTroy has been cleaning the coats donated for nearly a decade, and have cleaned thousands over the years.

“We’ve always been involved in the community and find it important to give back in different ways,” said BatesTroy President Brian Krajian. “This is a great opportunity for us to help kids and families, and at least get the cleaning part of this coat drive and taking care of coats for children in need completed.”

The coats were collected through Nov. 21.
