More than 600 coats have been donated across Greater Lafayette so far as part of the annual Coats for Kids drive.

Other winter apparel can be donated as well, including hats and gloves. Collections for donations will be set up now until this Sunday, Oct. 22.

Locations include Lazy Boy Furniture Gallery, Arconic, Wabash National, area Payless Supermarkets, and WLFI.

"We always have more than we need immediately, but our distribution day is just the beginning. We continue to hand out coat through the season until they're all gone. We always want at least over 1,000 that way we can definitely meet the immediate need," said Lt. Steven Dahl of the Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army will continue to take donations through the season. This is the seventh year they have has hosted the event.

"I think we're going to have a good turnout as far as having enough coats for the season obviously, but also it's just always good to see the generosity of the community come together and help the people that are in need this winter and fall," said Dahl.

Items collected will be distributed on Saturday, Oct. 28 at the Lafayette Adult Resource Academy. It runs from 9 a.m. to Noon.
