CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) - A local hospital is trying to make sure those who are less fortunate can stay warm this winter.

St. Joseph's Hospital is running a coat and blanket drive starting next Wednesday. The drop-off location is at the hospital's information desk, and it will be open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and ends on September 15th.

They're asking for gently used winter coats or snowsuits, hats, mittens, boots and blankets.

They plan on distributing the winter wear at the end of September.
