Plenty of children— more than 500 kids— will be warmer this winter thanks to the Cozy Kids coat program, while at the same time, 80 residents received coats through the Center For Human Services coat drive.

Churches, schools, individuals and businesses such as Thompson Chevrolet/Buick/GMC and McAuley Ford, along with the local Wal-Mart, were active supporters of the Cozy Kids program. Cozy Kids was brought to fruition by Jennifer Brannon, a Patterson resident who attends Harvest Christian Center in Turlock. Meanwhile, local businesses also acted as drop-off locations for the Center for Human Services drive, spearheaded by Luz Maria Vasquez.

Both drives were held throughout November and residents donated new and gently used coats and sweatshirts for those in need locally.
