ALBANY – Donations are being collected to help Albany elementary students in need.
This year’s Cash for Coats drive kicks off Friday at the Albany Devil’s hockey game at the Times Union Center.
The program is designed to collect funds to purchase new winter clothing for local children.
Donations will be accepted at the hockey game.
You can also donate at City Hall and Lodge’s Department store until November 1.
This is the 7th year the drive has taken place.
The 2012 drive raised enough to purchase more than 5,000 new coats, gloves, scarves and hats.
