Temperatures are dropping fast in Western Colorado, and many residents do not have proper coats to help get them through the Winter. Many of those affected are children. The annual coat drive with the Salvation Army is underway.

Donation barrels have been set up all over the valley. When you get a chance, go through the closets and look under the bed, and dig out those old coats and jackets you don't plan to wear again. Drop them in one of the donation barrels, and they'll be distributed to someone in need right here in the Grand Valley. Keep in mind, children's coated are also needed.
