The New To You consignment store in Lufkin is giving out free coats. That's right, they are free to anyone who wants one. There are no qualifications except just drive up, pick one out, and take it home.
The store owners collected coats in association with Faith Family Church in Burke.
It's their second year to provide the free coats. Last year they gave out more than 400 and expect to give away even more this year
"We want to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Basically, that's what the Bible says - to help the poor, the needy, and the homeless, and we just want to be a part of that," said New To You owner, James Cole. "Fortunately, we have the opportunity to do that, and we just feel that like that's what we need to do. It's the right thing to do."
The coats are absolutely free. They are on racks right out front of the New To You consignment store on Atkinson Street.
