Local groups gathering coats, clothing and shoes to keep people warm this winter

The Taft United Methodist Church, Salvation Army and Westside Community Resource Center are teaming up for Operation Warm Up.
The Methodist Church at 630 North Street will be the site of the warm winter clothing drive on Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Just bring the donated items to the Seventh Street entrance to the church.
Community members are asked to donate coats, jackets, clothing, shoes and socks for needy people of all ages in sizes for infants to adult.
The drive is especially aimed at getting good warm clothing for young children.
