GREATER LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Friday was the last day for the Coats for Kids Campaign.
Gently used coats, hats and gloves were donated to benefit kids in the Lafayette community. The Salvation Army, WLFI and local businesses sponsored the event this year.
Salvation Army Major, Jim Irvine, says the need for coats is greater than last year.
“I have a hard time keeping it together because you made the difference in a life of a child and a life of a parent. They are so appreciative. Quite frankly, I'm the one they thank, but it's you the public that make all of this happen,” said Irvine.
