Not getting up early to battle the shoppers this Black Friday? Well even if you are, here’s a great way to give back at the same time. Seven Kentuckiana locations are accepting gently used coats this Friday, November 25th from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.  It’s part of the second annual “Buy Nothing Day” Coat Drive that started nationally but is gaining ground here at home. It’s one way to encourage consumers to keep their sights set on helping the community this holiday season. I have several coats that Jack has outgrown and I even started a collection here at WHAS. It’s a simple easy way to help out! The locations are:
