Cops collect coats for kids

Got an old coat that's still in good shape? Feel like doing something nice for a child in need? You can donate winter coats to kids in the city through the police department and the District Attorney's office. The 4th annual "coats for kids" drive is going on now through Nov. 12th, and organizers need coats for everyone from infants to teenagers.

Secondhand donations are welcome, but there is an urgent need for new coats this year.
