TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

For the 8th year in a row, the Keep 'em warm coat drive is comforting people in Tifton.

County commissioner Melissa Hughes has already collected more than 500 coats.

They're all taken to Kelly Cleaners then given to those in need.

Hughes will continue to collect coats through December 2nd, and there's a specific size in high demand.

"Children's coats, children's coats, children's coats," Hughes reiterated. "I need children's coats because those are the phone calls I'm getting."

There area three donation sites in Tifton: The YMCA, Kelley Cleaners and Charles Kent Building Commissioners Office.

For more information on how to donate or receive coats, contact Hughes on Facebook.
