Coats, gloves, boots are just some of the essentials that are donated by people who leave behind the used or old winter gear they have.

Event co-organizer Mark Loshack said that without devices, it could be difficult for children to go to school when the temperature drops.

“You’re looking at about 1,000 kids a year getting new coats so they can go to school comfortably,” says Loshack. “Because if they freeze, they won’t go to school.”

Loshack adds about 20,000 jackets have been accepted and given to children in need thanks to Coats for Kids.
