WATERLOO (KWWL) -

About 350 people were in line when the doors opened Saturday afternoon at Sacred Heart School in Waterloo for a free winter clothes giveaway.  The event was put on by the 4th Street Church Row Coalition .

The churches have collected winter clothes for the last four months and gave people in their community and surrounding areas a chance to choose items at no charge.

Items included pillows, blankets, kids clothes, and winter coats.

 "I think it also shows that there is a definite need in our community, to have so many people showing up in this short period of time" said Pat Jackson of the Sacred Heart Parish.

This is the fourth year the coalition has sponsored the giveaway, and they say it's grown every year.
