Coats for Kids Helps Twin Ports Residents in Need

The Superior Salvation Army is distributing coats this week to help those in need.

SUPERIOR, Wis.- It’s getting chillier in the Northland, but thanks to one local organization Twin Ports residents in need have access to winter gear.

The Superior Salvation Army is hosting Coats for Kids Wednesday through Friday. Community members were asked to donate coats, which will be distributed this week. The event is for the whole family with coats for infants to adults.  This year over 1,300 coats were donated from the Twin Ports.

“We have a food shelf open and we have people that will come in throughout the entire year, with a sweatshirt or just a t–shirt on and it’s freezing cold outside,” Captain Jason Elcombe said. “It’s such an important event to be able to give people back a little bit of warmth this time of year.”

Since Coats for Kids began, over 21,000 have been donated. The last day of distribution is Friday, Nov. 11th at 4 p.m.
