TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- With temperatures starting to hit single digits pretty regularly, Scotch Cleaners and The Salvation Army's "Share the Warmth" coat giveaway couldn't come a better time.

The 27th annual event will be held this Saturday, December 7, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Salvation Army, 1320 SE 6th Ave. Shoppers are asked to come in through the Child Care Center doors at the corner of 6th Ave. and Lawrence St.

When you arrive, you'll be asked to sign up and list the number of coats you'll need for those in your household. No documentation is required, but the Salvation Army is asking everyone to shop for their family only. Personal shoppers will be there to help you, if needed.

According to numbers provided by the Salvation Army, since the program began 27 years ago, they and Scotch Cleaners have teamed up to giveaway over 220,272 coats. Last year alone, they gave away over 8,500 coats.
