Families trying to make ends meet this Christmas got some other help Saturday morning. Zikers Cleaners teamed up with the South Bend Community School Corporation to collect gently used Coats for Kids.
About 1,500 coats were collected and distributed at sites like Navarre Intermediate Center. There were boy's and girl's coats of all sizes to help keep growing kids warm.
Zikers has collected and cleaned over 190,000 donated coats for the giveaway since 1986.
