Church leaders will donate the winterwear collected to homeless families. Calvary Chapel Church Coordinator, Doug Kiser said this event has grown tremendously through the years.

They've donated more than a thousand coats since the launch of the event in 2014. He said that's all thanks to the community.

“It's been getting bigger and only because of the help from the community and so we need the community to help us supply this stuff for the people and they've been great, they overload the boxes,” said Kiser

One important aspect is being face-to-face with those receiving coats. Kiser said it makes the experience much more personal.

“The one thing that they want to know is how much somebody cares about them, that's a big deal to them and so when we show them that we care about them then they care and they respond back,” said Kiser.
