PAINTSVILLE, Ky (WYMT) - If you have been outside lately, we do not have to tell you how chilly it has been.

That is why one organization wants to make sure families in Johnson County have coats.

On Wednesday, the Johnson Central Youth Services Center held a coat and clothing giveaway.

Families of students at Johnson County Schools could come and take whatever they needed.

Kings Daughter's Medical Center donated several items.

Karen Salyer is an organizer with the event and said with a tough economy impacting so many, it is nice to see the town rallying behind those in need.

"We have been really blessed that our community has been such a big, big factor in this. We would not be able to do this if it was not for our community," said Salyer.

Salyer said they do a giveaway every nine weeks.
