They've been collecting coats all month for children between the ages of 1 and 8.

Organizers plan to give coats to kids in need at the Carbondale Police annual Community Christmas Store and right now they still need some help.

"We set up a store here in the community room We invite the parents to come in and select and a very minimal cost gifts and toys for their children. Two years ago we decided to try and get a coat for everyone of those children as well," Sgt. Amber Ronketto said.

You can donate a coat at either of the police stations or at Wednesday night's SIU Men's home basketball game.

Boys
