Thank you, NBC 5 viewers! You helped us donate 5,340 coats to the Salvation Army this year.
The total was even bigger than expected, and that's not all. Besides your generous donations of new and gently worn coats, viewers also dropped off 740 toys at NBC Tower through Wednesday morning.
The coats and toys will go to children and families who need them most this holiday season.
