Cooler weather means it’s time to bundle up. That can cause a hardship on families who are experiencing financial difficulties. That’s why WAAY 31 and Family Security Credit Union are teaming up for Coats for Kids.

This project will ensure that children throughout North Alabama will be kept warm through winter. You can help by donating a brand new coat at any Family Security Credit Union Nov 1 through Nov. 23.

WHRP Radio Station begins its 14th annual Coats for Kids coat drive on Thursday, Nov. 21.


On air personality Toni Terrell will be set up in an RV for four days between Nov. 21 and Sunday, Nov. 24. All coats donated will be distributed to three non-profit organizations that help families in need in North Alabama.


The organizations are: The Huntsville City Schools Homeless Program under the McKinney Vento Act, the clothing and mobile program from Christmas Charities, and Northwest Community Services’ Holiday program.


Anyone interested in donating a new or gently used coat can meet Toni at the Exchange at Redstone Arsenal between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Nov. 21 and 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Nov. 22.


The RV will then move to the Walmart at 8650 Madison Blvd in Madison for collections between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Nov. 23 and 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Nov. 24.


New coat donations are preferred, but checks for the organizations or gift cards will be accepted.


Any cash donations will be used to fill in the gap of sizes needed.
