ALBANY, GA (WALB) –The men from an Albany social fraternity donate 45 coats to the Salvation Army to help kids stay warm.

Several members of the Sigma Pi Phi fraternity presented the coats to Captain Doug McClure Wednesday.

The fraternity raised money to purchase the coats from J-C Penney.  This is the fifth year the fraternity has helped meet a need for the Salvation Army.

Salvation Army Captain Douglas McClure said "It's getting really cold and it's getting to one of those times we really need those kind of coats, and we are thankful for them."

Sigma Pi Phi Sire Archon C.W. Grant said  "this is the time of the year to make an impact, particularly for the people in our community who really get their service from the Salvation Army, and we want the Salvation Army to be able to help them."

The fraternity urges the community to join their effort and donate children's coats to the Salvation Army.
