Coats for Kids Drive hits Halfway Mark, More Donations Needed

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, WA - NBC Right Now's Coats for Kids drive has hit the half way point but the need for coats is still very strong.

The Salvation Army said they are short on coats of all sizes.

They said the numbers are down, but the need is up.

About half of the donations come from the annual school challenge and we may be seeing a different school take the trophy this year.

Maya Angelou Elementary School in Pasco is currently in the lead by more than 100 coats.

"We're really really exited, I mean it's amazing how many coats we have, it's amazing what the kids have done in donating, it's amazing the opportunity we have not to only give back to our community but what that means for our school," said Maya Angelou Elemtary School PTO Treasurer Marcia Rose.

Maya Angelou Elementary School will get 25 tickets to a Tri-City Americans game for winning the halfway challenge.
