EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The Salvation Army of Evansville says there are items they still need for winter.

The Salvation Army says they urgently need 200 coats sizes 5-12.

Major Loren Carter explains there are kids who only have hoodies to keep them warm.

They also need gloves, mittens and scarves.

If the coats are brand new, please call this number 812-459-0409.

If they are used, you could drop them off at any Don’s Cleaners and they will clean them.

”If we get some severely cold weather, you know we’ve been hit or miss - it’s been cold and warm, cold and warm,” Carter said. “Now that we are getting close to January and February, it seems to be colder months. We want to get those coats in place pretty quickly.”

Major Carter also asked the community to help some fire victims by donating twin bed sheets, dishes, silverware, pots and pans.
