Keep an eye out for those familiar blue bins!

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN ) – Our annual Coats for Kids campaign kicks off in September. So, be on the lookout for those blue barrels! We are collecting new, or gently used coats, to help children stay warm this winter. There will then be a distribution day at St. Vincent de Paul in Dayton, where qualified families can pick out what they need for free.

St. Vincent de Paul is a partner, and the executive director says the need is never greater in our community. Listen to the interview to hear him describe why so many families are struggling and how they’re being helped.
