OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — It's already cold outside and it just keeps getting colder. With temperatures like these a winter coat is essential.

This year KMTV is hoping to help those in need get winter gear to keep warm with Jennifer's Warmth for Winter Coat Drive.

All coats, hats, and scarves will be donated to the Heartland Hope Mission. CEO, Chelsea Salifou said they are in need of coats for children of all sizes. "With these cold temperatures we have families coming in, especially for children that have grown out of those coats they wore last year that are in need of some nice heavy clothing," she said.

The last day to donate is Saturday. For a list of donation sites click here.
