— A lot of kids in Janesville may go without a warm coat this winter because not enough people are donating to the salvation army's "coats for kids" program.

Lindi Paull is a women's auxiliary member, and chair of the "coats for kids" project. She says with less than a week to go, collections from all sources are down about 50%.


Paull says the bad news surprised them and they're concerned children "in need" will not be helped. Paull says many of their regular sources have dried up and they won't be able to change their focus until next year. They're hoping this urgent S.O.S. to the community will help fill the gap.


Collection barrels will remain out until Sunday. The items collected will be laundered next week and distributed on October 30th on a first come first served basis.
