COLORADO SPRINGS — It's the season of giving and for many kids in need, a coat can make a world of difference.

The Pikes Peak United Way held a coat drive Tuesday to collect items for needy kids this holiday season.

While many non-profits are struggling this year because of the pandemic, United Way said that learning to adapt with the times will help them moving forward.

"Right now, we are all in survival mode. But I think as we re-prioritize, we're going to come out of this with better, more strategic, innovative ideas, that will help our nonprofits survive," Cindy Aubrey, President and CEO of the Pikes Peak United Way said.

The organization has collected 200 coats so far. They hope to get 1,600 this year.
