Breakaway Ministries hosts annual Coat Drive ahead of winter season

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Hundreds of coats were being collected Saturday by Breakaway Ministries at Victory World Outreach in Colorado Springs.

The group hopes to help out those in need this winter.

Last year, the Coat Drive brought in more than $7,000 worth of warm clothes and blankets which were all donated to the people who could use them the most this time of year.

“It’s a big need here in our city. We have a huge homeless population and they need it. It’s going to be cold this winter their stuff wears out fast,” said coordinator Monique Mathenia.
