One Good Thing: TrueNorth Community Services hold coat drive

Hundreds of kids and their parents are better prepared to deal with this winter's cold weather thanks to the nonprofit.

NEWAYGO, Mich. — Hundreds of kids and adults will stay warm this winter, thanks to an annual drive in Newaygo County.

For the 29th year, True North Community Services handed out new and gently used coats, jackets, gloves, mittens, scarves and hats. 

For a solid month, 70 volunteers worked 12 different sites during the Coats for Kids and Adults distribution. 

"We can't ever afford winter stuff. We even found some ski pants. So, this place is amazingly helpful," said one woman who showed up to the event with her kids. 

The drive is sponsored by the Gerber Foundation and Fremont Area Community Foundation. They all get today's One Good Thing.
