Coats 4 Kids distribution now underway

SPOKANE, Wash. — 4 News Now’s Coats 4 Kids drive ended just in time for chilly temperatures. 

Each year, we do our best to make sure every child in the Inland Northwest has a coat to stay warm. 

On Monday, we began distributing the coats and hats that were so generously donated over the past month. 

It’s a community-wide effort and one that brings a smile to the faces of volunteers like Marlene Whitney at the Northeast Community Center. 

“It’s just wonderful we can help some of these families that have a large bunch of kids for winter. It’s cold here and they need coats,” Whitney said. 

If your child is in need of a coat, you can pick one up at several locations across the INW. Click here for a list.
