She's International collects coats at downtown Roanoke store

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) Temperatures are dropping this week, and social workers say there is an immediate need for warm, winter coats.

She's International is collecting coats for the Homeless Assistance Team at their Salem Avenue location.

"As it gets cold, I thought we could do this program called 'Baby, It's Cold Outside,' so that no one would have to be cold for the winter," owner Diane Speaks.

Just bring any new or gently-used coat or outdoor wear during business hours, and they'll be passed along to someone who needs one.

"It's critical for us to have local businesses and other organizations to help us because we can't do this all by ourselves," Paula Prince said.
