IN YOUR CORNER: Coats needed as Warmth 4 Winter 2021 kicks off

In Your Corner

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Warmth 4 Winter is back, and with cold temps in the forecast, the need for coat donations is now!

Calls to In Your Corner have begun as Oklahomans look to give back.

“I was cleaning out the coat closet,” said D’anne Davis. “They need to go somewhere.”

D’anne and her husband Butch dropped a dozen or so coats off with KFOR News, which will soon make their way to the Salvation Army.

Officials there are urging folks to give before the weather shifts.

“Please help now,” added Rebecca Hayes, with the Salvation Army. “Before we have any of the snow or bad winter weather coming.”

It’s been a labor of love with In Your Corner for decades, from Brad Edwards, to Scott Hines, to now.

This last year’s drive came amidst an icy blast, and an arctic freeze not seen for some time.

“Last year, with the weather we had, so many people without electricity,” said Rebecca. “These coats were really important.”

From their drop off locations, coats will be picked up by Two Men and a Truck and taken to Legacy Cleaners to be cleaned.

From there, they’ll be given to families in need.

Those who would like to inquire about how to receive a coat, should call the Salvation Army at (405) 246-1100
