MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - First United Methodist Church of Midland's Coats for Kids drive has begun, with more than 800 Midland students in need.
Over 2015, 33 Midland Independent School District schools turned in requests for coats to First United Methodist Church of Midland, meaning over 800 cannot afford a winter coat.
First United Methodist set up its Coats for Kids drive like a giving tree. Those interested can pick up donation cards, which will have a student's size and color preference, in the First Methodist Church Office at 300 North Main Street.
Donations will be accepted until November 29. First United Methodist Church of Midland plans to have over 800 coats by that day.
Monetary donations are also accepted to help buy more coats.
