Coat drive for Student in Need underway in Great Falls

Last year’s Community Coat Drive collected more than 600 winter coats for kids in need when organizer Cyndi Baker said she was only hoping for 200.

“It was amazing,” she said. “But they’re gone.”

Baker and other businesses are partnering with My Neighbor in Need’s Student in Need program once again not just to provide coats, but other winter goods like boots, hats, gloves and snowpants in all sizes to outfit kids and keep them warm this winter.

“Lots of times we can have a coat on a kid within the day,” said Kim Wombolt, executive director of My Neighbor in Need.
