LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) -- As temperatures drop near zero, Mall St. Matthews and St. Vincent De Paul are teaming up to collect coats for men, women and children.
The items can be new or gently used and can be dropped off at designated areas in the mall. St. Vincent De Paul will pick up the donated items and distribute them to those who are in need.
Dee Snyder with Mall St. Matthews says, "we collect anything that somebody has lost interest in or their kids have outgrown so coats, jackets, blankets, scarves, boots, virtually anything someone might need as the cold weather comes in."
Items can be dropped off through the end of February. The collection bin is located near Pottery Barn and Ashcroft and Oak Jewelers.
