28/22 News (WBRE/WYOU) — In its second year, the annual Coats for Kids Project was a success.

The times we live in are difficult for many families here in Northeast Pennsylvania.

Here at WBRE-TV/WYOU-TV, 28/22 News, we believe there should never be a child without a warm coat for winter.

That’s why once again, as part of our NEPA’s Children First Campaign, we held our annual Coats For Kids Project.

28/22 News joined with the Pennsylvania Salvation Army to help our area’s needy families and children. One viewer even knitted hats for kids in need.

Once donated coats are cleaned, the Salvation Army will distribute them where they see the most need.

We want to thank everyone for their generosity for the 2023 Coats for Kids Project. You have helped our station reach our goal and we will have our grand total of coats collected coming up in later editions on 28/22 News.
