East Texans are being asked to donate their old coats for the coats for kids campaign.
Several participating cleaners around East Texas are accepting coats. They will clean the coats for free. Then the coats will be delivered to the Christian Information Service Center in Lufkin and Godtel Ministries in Nacogdoches. Officials say many East Texas children are in need of coats for the winter.
"It's important because there are a lot of children out there who need coats but don't have them and when the weather gets cold it's good for them to have nice warm jackets to wear," Mary Blanchard of Elite Cleaners in Lufkin said.
Here is a complete list of all the participating East Texas cleaners:
