A Queen City Cold Snap has welcomed in 2014! Our usually mild, some say “perfect weather” city has surrendered to Mother Nature and left our Southern tempered bodies shivering in bewilderment!
The bitter cold has,however, warmed the hearts of Charlotteans and prompted many to consider the less fortunate needing help.
Steve’s Coats for Kids Campaign is more important than ever and runs through January 15th. Spear headed by Steve Udelson, Eyewitness News Meteorologist, the campaign is in its 10th year of collecting new and gently used children’s coats of all sizes. Over 42 designated collections sights, including Channel 9, the Charlotte Fire Department and Ashley Furniture Home Stores will be accepting donations throughout the Charlotte area.
All coats are given to the Crisis Assistance Ministry, and independent non-profit agency. The coats spend less than 48 hours in the Crisis Assistance Ministry Store before received by someone in need.
