Cold weather has arrived!
Thanks to your generosity, since 1988, WRAL has collected 143,000 coats and raised $1,379,800 to provide warm, winter clothing for Salvation Army families in need. Our 2012 campaign was our biggest collection to date! Together, we raised $90,000 and collected 10,000 coats and 1,000 toys for Salvation Army families. This year, our goal is to raise $100,000 for Salvation Army families. With your generosity, we know we can serve even more families in need.Help us make it a warmer and happier winter for Salvation Army families during WRAL’s 25th Annual Coats for the Children campaign.
