SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Do you have a spare coat? If so, put it to good use — and give it away.

The 31st Annual Coats for Kids Drive starts Monday, Nov. 25. Started in 1988 by Porter’s Cleaners, Goodwill Industries and KSLA News 12, the drive has been supplying children with coats for decades.

Drop any gently new or used coats off at any Porter’s Cleaning locations in Bossier City or Shreveport.

You can also drop them off at KSLA News 12 in Shreveport’s Highland/Fairfield neighborhood at 1812 Fairfield Avenue, across from the former Christus-Shumpert Hospital.
