Region 8 church needs help keeping children warm

NEWPORT, AR (KAIT) -

Members of a Newport church are asking you to help them keep children warm this winter.

A coat drive is underway at the New Life Church of God. They're working to provide kids at the New Life Children's Home in Oil Trough with warm clothes.

Amber Chism with the New Life Church of God said the need right now is huge.

“We are actually in need of house parents right now so we can bring in more children, because there are so many kids in this state that are in need of our help,” Chism said. “And these coats will help to keep them all warm.”

You can drop off a coat for children ages 4 to 17 anytime. The church is also holding a coat drive for adults in their Recovery Center and their "A-State Street Mission" every Saturday where they provide people with food and clothing.
