Special to Iredell Free News

Iredell County’s Safe Kids Coalition is hosting its 2nd Annual Holiday Winter Weather Drive to collect new children’s hats, gloves, socks and other winter weather wear from November 15 through December 12.

Iredell County residents are invited to make a difference in our local community by donating to the drive and helping Safe Kids give to children in need in our communities this winter and help ensure that they stay warm.

The need for essentials for fall and winter weather continues in Iredell County. Safe Kids’ Holiday Winter Weather Drive will give these essentials to those in need. Everything we collect will be used for a public purpose and will be distributed within Iredell County in order help children stay safe and warm this fall and winter.

Not only will children and their families receive winter wear items, holiday safety tip sheets and information will also be distributed.
