INDIANA (21Alive & NBC33) -- The 12th annual Coats for Kids program kicked off October 31st, 2013 and since then 438 new coats have been collected and Peerless has cleaned about 700 used coats that were donated.

1,874 coats are needed to children in our area. $25 donations will provide a child with a coat, hat and gloves.
