Sheriff's office collecting coats for community

IZARD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - With cold weather just around the corner, one Region 8 sheriff's office wants to make sure everyone stays warm.

The Izard County Sheriff's Department is currently holding a coat drive.

Residents can drop off new or slightly used, clean coats and jackets at the office located at 300 Circle Dr. in Melbourne or at the substation in Horseshoe Bend.

The coats will be distributed to adults and children in the community who don't have a good coat, Sheriff Tate Lawrence said.

For more information, contact the sheriff's office at 870-368-4203.
