TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Monday kicked off our annual Coats for Kids drive. NEWS10 ABC and FOX23 along with your Capital Region Honda dealers and the National Cleaners Association are partnering to collect coats for local children in need.

Helping a Capital Region kid stay warm during the winter months is as easy as taking a gently used coat and bringing it to a local dry cleaner. You simply drop it off the bin, and the staff at the dry cleaner will take care of the rest. If you don’t have a used coat to donate, you can buy a brand-new coat and drop it off at a participating Honda dealership.

“It just makes you feel good,” said Wendy Harrington, an Averill Park resident who dropped off two children’s coats Monday morning at Rainbow Cleaners in Troy, “we need to take care of these kids. They may not have a warm coat.”

Allen Patanian, owner of Rainbow Cleaners, is one of dozens of dry cleaner owners all over the NEWS10 viewing area who will be collecting coats over the next several weeks.

“We’ve been doing this for about 30 years now, and the results are tremendous,” Patanian said.

The drive runs through November 5.
