The North Forty Collins Business Association and local Poudre Fire Authority (PFA) have teamed up to donate coats and boots to the Fort Collins community to keep kids warm.

Firefighters from the Local 1945 (PFA) partnered with Kristi Visocky Memorial Foundation to provide 288 coats to the community. 258 of the coats went directly to Poudre School District (PSD) schools, with the other 30 going to Fort Collins organization Muheres De Colores to help people with low-income.

PFA Firefighter Andrew Morris said the coat drive’s mission was to provide warmth, confidence, and hope to children in need through the gift of a brand-new winter coat.

“Hopefully, these coats will offer both physical and emotional warmth and help our youth to a brighter future,” said Andrew. “As servants to our community, it was an honor and a privilege to be a part of giving to students in need,” Andrew said.
