Volunteers picked them up on Friday and Herbert hopes to reach the goal of 1,000 coats by the end of this month.

“Whenever there was a sale, I would buy them, and then I thought let’s see if I can advance this a bit, I hit social media, I posted on Facebook — coats were coming,” Herbert said.

For those interested in dropping off a new coat or donating money, stop by the Salvation Army on 29th Street in Harrisburg. All sizes are needed from toddlers to adults.
