Cedar Rapids church launches coat drive

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - First Lutheran Church in Cedar Rapids launched a coat giveaway for adults Sunday morning.

The city has a history of collecting coats for kids, but realized there's a great need among adults as well. Seventh grader Natalie Wicks helped launch the first ever Great C.O.A.T. Drive (Coats On Adults Too).

"We're asking the public to please donate new or slightly used, clean adult winter coats to give away to people in need in our community. It would mean a lot to me if you could help us get the word out," Wicks said.

Church members began bringing in donated coats at 10 a.m. Sunday, and the Community Collection will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 27 at First Lutheran Church.
