When LSEA launched its first coat drive three years ago, they collected 30 coats and a little over $500. Three years later, this winter they have in stock more than 150 coats, 35 pairs of snow pants, about 15 pairs of boots, too many hats and gloves to keep track of, and more than $1,200 in donations to help keep Lansing schoolchildren warm this winter.
