Temps in Central Texas are starting to get consistently colder, and for many in need staying warm can be challenging.


The Salvation Army is asking for your donations to help out the less fortunate. The Winter Coat Drive is scheduled for Saturday January 22 from 9a till 2p at the McLane Center of Hope, 419 W Avenue G in Temple.

Sgt. Dawn Beckham tells KCEN,

"We provide clothing, shoes and coats to our clients as well as anyone in the community who is in need. As the weather gets colder, we are seeing a greater need for warm clothing and coats."

Give the Gift of Warmth

Volunteers with The Salvation Army will be on hand collecting coats, gloves, hats, scarves and socks and with the pandemic still raging on, you don't even need to get out of your car to donate. Just pull up and let the volunteers do the work.

Baby It's Cold Outside

Temps in Central Texas can be pretty unpredictable. Although we are still seeing unusually warm temps in the day from time to time. Overnight lows are definitely cold consistently dropping below 40 degrees with several days seeing early morning temps under 30 degrees.

Doing the Most Good

Let's face it, times are tough for a lot of folks. The ongoing pandemic and rising inflation can make it hard for a lot of families in need. If you can, take a few minutes to gather up some coats, gloves, hats, scarves, and socks and donate them to the Salvation Army's Coat Drive. A little can go along way for those going without.
