The annual Coats for Kids drive is being held at First National Bank, Main Branch, in Mena. Each year, coats of all sizes for boys and girls are donated and stored at the bank for distribution.
George O’Daniel of Lighthouse Fitness Center is one such citizen who spends many hours of his time collecting coats for the drive. So far this year, O’Daniel has collected over 200 coats and has given over 50 away.
Families in need are encouraged to visit First National Bank to choose a coat so that all Polk County citizens stay warm this winter.
