LYNCHBURG, Va.

One Voice One Community wants to remind you about its coat giveaway on Saturday. Thanks to several local businesses and churches, the Lynchburg organization has collected more than 2,000 coats. When we first spoke to organizers, they set a goal to collect just 400.

 

"I just want to thank Lynchburg for showing their love. This shows me that Lynchburg is a united city and we can do great things together. And I want to thank Lynchburg for proving it through sharing the warmth this year,” James Camm, co-founder of One Voice One Community, said.

 

One Voice One Community will hand out the coats for free Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Miller Center.
