LANSING, MICH. (WLNS) — The Lansing Area Veterans Coalition is asking for new and gently used clean coats and other winter gear. Donations will be given to homeless veterans and veterans at risk of homelessness.

Collections started at the beginning of October and were suppose to wrap up at the end of the month, but because of the growing need the coat drive has been extended through the winter.
