Through December, Tri-Staters donated new and gently used coats, and Don's Claytons cleaned all the coats and have been delivering them to local children. Owner Steve Schmitt says they collected nearly 6,800 coats this year and even had a company from St. Louis deliver a few hundred coats. Don's Claytons has been been organizing the Coat-a-Kid drive for the last 20 years.
A warm delivery on this cold January day brings comfort to those who need it most. This afternoon, Don's Claytons Dry Cleaning in Evansville delivered more than 300 coats to the Evansville Christian Life Center.
