Several Charlotte schools collect donations for 20th annual Steve’s Coats for Kids drive

CHARLOTTE — Each year, Channel 9′s Chief Meteorologist Steve Udelson collects coats for children in need.

This year, Steve’s Coats for Kids is celebrating its 20th anniversary and several local schools are lending a hand with the collection drive.

Laura Burnett is a fifth grade teacher and advisor at Highland Creek Elementary. She says the student council members there like to complete two service projects each school year.

She says having a coat can make or break a student’s success.
