BRYAN -- It may've been in the 80's today but colder weather is on its way, which means it's time to start pulling out your winter clothes.

The Compassionate Care Hospice is asking everyone to go through their closets and find any gently-used winter clothes that don't fit anymore to donate them for people who don't have enough money to stay warm.

The organization is collecting jackets, coats and sweatshirts in all sizes, including children's items.

Charli Johnson, with Compassionate Care Hospice said, "We feel like it's an ideal time to get this going because people are starting to feel the cooler temperatures outside and getting ready to switch to their fall and winter wardrobe and clean out what they're not going to use anymore or don't need anymore."

The organization will be collecting items through November 1st and then those items will then be sold during the coat sale for two dollars or less on November 5th.

If you would like donate any items, you can drop them off at 3833 South Texas Avenue, Suite 100.

The coat sale will be held at the Lighthouse Bible Church at 2110 Hearne Road in Bryan. The sale will be from 8 a.m. until noon.
