The United Way has joined forces with Herb Phillipson's this year to help those in need. The organization is donating 100 coats and 100 boots as part of their coat and boot drive. They are donating the items to five schools around the area, for the drive's fifth annual event.
"To be involved in a process like this, giving is so personal to people and it's so special, especially this time of year. It's really great to facilitate this kind of giving in the community," says Brenda Episcopo.
The organization says they appreciate the community's help with the drive.
