Special to Iredell Free News

Safe Kids Iredell County wants to make sure no children go cold this winter. The coalition is hosting a holiday cold weather drive to collect new children’s hats, gloves and socks through Sunday, December 13.

Iredell County residents are invited to make a difference in our local community by donating to the drive and helping Safe Kids Iredell County give to children in need in our community this winter.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of Americans were living in poverty and struggling to pay their bills. As the pandemic continues, the need for other essentials this fall and winter will be greater than ever before in Iredell County.

Safe Kids’ Holiday Cold Weather Drive will give to those in need. All donations will be distributed in our community in order help children stay safe and warm this winter.

Donations can be made at the following locations:

♦ Iredell County Health Department, 318 Turnersburg Highway, Statesville
Iredell County Partnership for Young Children, 734 Salisbury Road, Statesville
Iredell County Public Library, 201 N. Tradd Street, Statesville
