(WMC-TV) - Extreme cold and school cancellations exposed a major need in the Memphis community: coats for schoolchildren.
Action News 5 is partnering with the YWCA Greater Memphis and its Common Ground program to collect new coats for Memphis schoolchildren.
New coats can be dropped off between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the YWCA's main office at 766 South Highland Avenue Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week.
Please bring new coats only. The community needs children's sizes all the way up through the largest adult sizes in order to accommodate students of all ages, from pre-K to high school, boys and girls.
Gift cards will be accepted to area merchants as well as monetary donations, which will be used to buy coats in specific sizes for kids who need coats but whose sizes/genders were not available through the coat donation.
The YWCA will distribute the coats to needy children in YWCA after-school programs across the county and in the YWCA emergency shelter. Coats will also be distributed to Common Ground's adopted school South Park Elementary and other public schools.
