Coats for Kidz helps youths in need this winter

From the left, Shuny Rogers, Elliot Southworth and Jim Miller, who are all part of Coats for Kidz, pose for a photograph with jackets that have been collected for local children in need on Monday. The group has collected nearly 400 coats ranging from coats for infants all the way up to coats for adults through their Community Coat Drive.

Anyone who needs a coat can contact Rob Rollins at (828) 837-2718. The group wants to thank Jeana Conley and Cherokee County Schools, Girl Scout Troop #02683 and everyone who participated in the drive, the group said in a prepared statement.
