Volunteers counted about 3,500 coats that were donated to WSOC’s annual Steve’s Coats for Kids collection.
On Saturday at Blythe Elementary School in Huntersville, the volunteers from Hands On Charlotte inspected and looked through all the coats collected over the last few days.
The principal said why the collection is so important.
“You know we love our kids and we want them to be warm and it’s particularly cold out today and the thought of our children. To know that they're have a coat and be warm,” Principal Patricia Johanson said.
