Coat drive helps children in Gainesville


The Gainesville Woman’s Club has partnered with Stein Mart and local schools to provide winter coats to children whose families cannot afford them.  During the drive, which lasts until December 19th, people can drop off new or gently-used coats during normal Stein Mart business hours, and the club will make sure the coats are delivered to select schools for distribution.  WUFT-TV’s Gillian Finklea reports.
