Each year as the cold weather approaches, the Texas County Food Pantry gives coats to local citizens in need.
The project helps many families have winter coats that otherwise might not. This year’s coat give-away will be held at the Pantry on Monday, Oct. 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., or while supplies last.
“We appreciate our great community for coat donations throughout the year, which makes this annual coat give-away a success,” said director Bennie Cook.
