LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - In anticipation of the cold that lies ahead, an East Texas ministry tries to put warm clothing in the hands of needy families.
It was the annual coats for kids held Saturday at Longview’s Broughton Park.
Organized by Longview Community Ministries, winter coats, jackets, and hats were given out to those in need.
