The Knights of Columbus help keep local children warm

ABILENE, Texas - Dozens of children, and some adults, received free coats today.

The Knights of Columbus set up their "Coats for Kids" project at St. Francis Catholic Church. They've been giving away winters coats to struggling families since 2009.

The Knights bought 180 coats, and gave many away Sunday. One member said if they aren't all taken by Sunday night, there will be another opportunity to pick one up next weekend.
