Support 9Cares Colorado Shares, donate coats

KUSA - You can give back to your neighbors in need by coming out to support 9Cares Colorado Shares on November 18.

In addition to collecting food, 9NEWS is partnering with Coats for Colorado to make sure everyone is able to stay warm this winter.

Community members are encouraged to donate new or gently used, warm winter coats. Hats, gloves and boots are not accepted, because It can be difficult to sort them and keep pairs together.

There's always a need for children's coats from 6 months old to teens. Organizers say they especially need larger coats for men and women, specifically sizes 4X, 5X and 6X.
