Just in time for winter

The Salvation Army will hold a coat give-away at its 1468 Sterling Highway location from noon-2 p.m. Sept. 13. As in past three years, the coats have been donated by Fred Meyer and are distributed throughout Alaska free of charge. “There are no requirements,” said Lt. Christin Frankhauser of the Salvation Army in Homer. “People from Homer and nearby communities can come in and pick up coats for their kids. We’re hoping to get the word out so we have a good turn-out.”

Available sizes are 2T-youth extra large.
