Posted at 11:26 AM, Nov 23, 2016

The temperatures finally dropped and the final Coats for Kids distribution this year needs a little help.

Bishop Darius Pridgen of True Bethel Baptist Church and President of Colvin Cleaners, Inc. Paul Billoni are asking families to look in their closets for winter coats, hats, gloves or scarves they can donate.

Colvin Cleaners collects suitable, warm winter jackets for toddler to young adults, and hats, scarves and gloves for families. They will be cleaned and organized by size.

Donations can be made through Wednesday at Colvin Cleaner, located at 2375 Elmwood Avenue in Kenmore, any of the Dash's Markets, or in the lobby at True Bethel.

The final distribution will take place Saturday, December 3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at True Bethel, located at 907 East Ferry Street in Buffalo. Any family in need of a coat for their child can come with their benefits card to get one - limit of one coat per person.
