Each winter, the Salvation Army does what it can to keep local children warm by hosting its annual Coats For Kids Drive.

According to Sandy Chavez, the center's coordinator, the Salvation Army will be giving away coats of all sizes for children ages 3 through 17 on Nov. 21.

The Salvation Army will continue to accept donations of new and gently-used coats, which will be given away free to children and adults in need.

The coat drive will be held at 502 E. Pinon St. from 9 to 11 a.m.
