Community Urged to Help in Coats for Kids Campaign

"Coats for kids are where businesses and individuals from the community are asked to clean their closets and give those coats to the Sellers Funeral Home, and we will make sure they get to that child that needs them," said Senator Richard Alloway.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - While the leaves continue changing colors, it's only a matter of time until everyone in the region will need something warm to wear. 

But what about a child who does not have a jacket?

Sellers Funeral Home has organized Coats for Kids, a campaign to collect winter coats for families in need.

"Coats for kids are where businesses and individuals from the community are asked to clean their closets and give those coats to the Sellers Funeral Home, and we will make sure they get to that child that needs them," said Senator Richard Alloway.

It’s an event that has collected thousands of coats for families in need. Many locals have continued to show their support by dropping off hundreds of coats at the funeral home.

However, organizers say their mission to make sure every child has something warm to wear this winter is not finished. 

"Well we're a little short! We're coming into the closing weeks so we need another 500 or so to make our goal and we're making a plea to the community," said Senator Alloway.

"It warms my heart that some kid can have a coat that will warm his heart as well," said Harry Black, Coats for Kids donor.

The Coats for Kids campaign continues through Tuesday, and with several hundred coats still needed to meet their goal, Senator Alloway is asking the community to drop off your coats at the Sellers Funeral Home in Chambersburg this week.
