CHARLESTON — The cold reality of the holiday season is that not everyone has access to the winter gear they need to stay warm. More than 200,000 people die each year from the cold. This year, in honor of MLK Day of Service, Education Alliance AmeriCorps is hosting a coat drive called Coats4Kids from January 18 to February 1, 2021.

The Coats4Kids drive is part of a national effort through One Warm Coat.
