OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – They come by the bagful, boxful and truckful. This year’s Warmth for Winter is off to a tremendous start.

“Our count yesterday was 157,” Dee Watts, Director of Social Services, explained last week. “That’s a good place to start.”

That was only after the first pick-up. Two Men and a Truck will be dropping off piles of donated coats for months.

“For me, this is actually my first,” said Lakeith McGee, Operations Manager with Two Men and a Truck. “It’s actually my first time to grasp the whole concept of everything. It’s pretty awesome.”

This concept though has gone on for some time.

From Brad Edwards nearly three decades ago, to Scott Hines to a decade-plus, to now. Last year’s coat drive raised a record number.

“We did about 2,400 coats last year,” noted Watts.

So should you have a garment to donate, simply drop it by the KFOR studios, 444 E. Britton Road, or a number of other locations.

The more worn coats will be sent to Legacy Cleaners for cleaning.

All coats though will eventually make their way to the Salvation Army, to be given to someone in need.
