ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

For the 11th year in a row, an Albany fraternity is making sure that children in need stay warm.

The men of Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity presented 50 new winter coats to the Albany Salvation Army on Wednesday.  

Every year, the fraternity buys new coats to make sure kids have proper clothes for the cold days.

"Exactly. That is it.  And we also have scholarships that we give out also," said Sigma Pi Phi President Dr. Freddie Green.

"To receive the generosity of the community. And know that it's going to have a direct impact on young person's lives," explained Albany Salvation Army Commander Major English Kelly.

Major Kelly said that the need for warm clothes is always great this time of year and the fraternity's coat donation makes a big difference.
