November 27th

SALT LAKE CITY — As the weather gets colder, a lot of people are in need of warm winter coats. The fourth annual Community Coat Exchange helps provide coats to those in need.

People dropped off extra coats at the Salt Lake City Library Plaza Friday. Those who needed a coat could get one, no questions asked.

Exchange organizers say there has been a decline in donations this year.

“This is indicative of a larger need this year for families during this time. Maybe people aren’t giving away things and maybe people are more in need,” says Deanna Taylor with the Community Coat Exchange.

Leftover coats will be given to the Crossroads Urban Center Thrift Store at 1385 W. 840 S. in Salt Lake City.

Those who didn’t make it Friday can still drop extra coats off at the center.
