HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - The non-profit is making sure Huntsville city and Madison county students have a jacket on their back to stay warm at school.

But they need your help.

This is a critical time for Christmas Charities Year Round and not because it's inching near Christmas. They rely on their "Mobile Closet" to keep students in our area warm.

"We're actually delivering hygiene related materials, we're delivering school supplies, and clothes to the kids that are in need," said Cassie Scott, Executive Director.

Scott says this way, parents don't have to miss work or students miss school by coming to the Christmas Charities office.

"They fill out a permission slip and it gets sent back to us and we know what size they need and we bring it to them," explained Scott.

The mobile closet hasn't even been in operation for a year and has served thousands of students already. But there is always a need and opportunity to give.

"Right now with the season changing coats and scarves and things like that," said Scott. "We've seen many times where we've shown up to the school early in the morning and kids are sitting outside waiting and there's no coat...there's no scarf."

If you'd like to donate you can visit the Christmas Charities Year Round office on Jordan Lane.

They're open Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
