Wrap A Child In Warmth

The 18th annual Wrap A Child In Warmth campaign is under way.

Sponsored by Coldwell Banker The Ron Brown Company, coats and blankets are donated and then distributed to needy children in Victoria County.

"We think this is a great program," said Lee Swearingen, broker with Coldwell Banker The Ron Brown Company. "The holidays are a special time of giving and we see this campaign as a way to give something back to the community."

Triangle Cleaners cleans the items at no charge. They are then taken to the Victoria school district's KIDZ Connection where they are sorted and distributed to needy children and their families.

Donation barrels can be found at:

Coldwell Banker The Ron Brown Company

All Triangle Cleaners locations in Victoria and Cuero

First Victoria National Bank, north office and downtown

Wells Fargo Bank, Rio Grande location

American Red Cross
