Coats for Kids is a program existing only to provide winter coats and other items to people free of charge. People are asked to bring new or gently used warm winter coats, snow pants, mittens, hats, snow boots and scarves to the various drop off locations throughout Tomah and Sparta between now and Monday October 16. Items will then be distributed at Lighthouse Assembly of God, 762 West Clifton Street, Tomah, on Friday October 20th from 4 to 6 PM and on Saturday, October 21st from 10-Noon.
