OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) — The early start to winter in Oklahoma this year reminds us how quickly the temperatures can drop and those without coats in need.
KFOR is proud to once again be partnering with the Salvation Army for the Warmth 4 Winter coat drive.
The late Brad Edwards worked tirelessly as a consumer advocate and started the KFOR In Your Corner segments helping Oklahomans. He wanted to help ensure every child had a warm winter coat and we are working to carry on the mission.
Edwards, who was always In Your Corner, was driving to work about 30 years ago when he noticed children walking outside in the freezing cold without coats. He thought Oklahomans could do better and this coat drive was born with the help of The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma Area Command.
If you know anyone in need of a winter coat, contact that Salvation Army at (405) 246-1100.
