INDIANAPOLIS — The past year has been especially difficult for families across central Indiana.
Now, more than ever, WTHR's Coats for Kids needs your help!
Starting Sept. 5, donate new or gently used kids' coats, sized infant to teen, to any Classic Cleaners location.
The annual Coats for Kids coat drive helps the Salvation Army keep children across central Indiana warm.

Last year, thousands of coats were distributed to Hoosier families at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
This program is for children ages 0-17 (18 if your child is still in school). Your child must be present in order to receive a coat.
All Coats for Kids recipients should pre-register at this link and choose an appointment time in order to receive a coat. Registration runs through Oct. 7.
Coats for Kids is planned for Saturday, Oct. 14 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Blue Ribbon Pavilion at 1202 E. 38th St. in Indianapolis.
Volunteers are still needed for Coats for Kids.
This is a great opportunity for corporate groups, churches and service clubs to give back before the busy holiday season.
