In these hard economic times there are thousands of individuals in Eastern Iowa that are in need of a warm winter coat. It gets cold during the Eastern Iowa winter. Sometimes VERY cold. To serve this need, KCRG-TV9 created Coats For Kids. It is a partnership between KCRG, our Show You Care sponsors, and area outreach groups to collect and distribute new and gently used coats each fall. Coats in sizes infant through adult are donated at locations throughout Eastern Iowa, collected and cleaned, and distributed to the children who need them by family service organizations and volunteers. Many more children can stay warm each winter as a result of the generosity of our communities.
