Kinship Partners' 32nd annual Coats for Kids drive is nearing an end, with the coat distribution set from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Westgate Mall in Brainerd/Baxter.

From 9-11 a.m., children must be present to ensure proper fit and be accompanied by a parent, guardian or their adult Kinship Partner. One coat per person plus other winter outerwear will be given away while supplies last. There are no criteria beyond the need for a child to receive a winter coat.

Anyone unable to bring their child Saturday morning can come from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., when kids do not need to be present to pick up a coat or other winter outerwear.

Sunrise Sertoma, 104.3 The Pulse, the New Brainerd BNI Chapter, and the Marine and Small Engine Technology students from Central Lakes College assisted with this year's Coats for Kids distribution.

Coats for Kids is sponsored by Kinship Partners, Hubbard Broadcasting, Crystal Cleaners and the Westgate Mall.
