Cooler weather is on the way and pretty soon, it'll be time to get out your coats. Unfortunately, many kids don't have one to keep warm during Minnesota's long winters.

That's why Pilgrim Dry Cleaners does its annual Coats For Kids campaign each year.


The company has been doing the campaign for the past 35 years. This year's goal is to bring in 10,000 new or lightly used coats that will go to families in need.

Pilgrim Dry Cleaners said, this year, the need for coats is greater than ever.

If you'd like to donate a coat, you can drop it off at any of the 26 Pilgrim Dry Cleaner locations in the Twin Cities.
