MILWAUKEE — Winter is the perfect time to make a donation to FOX6’s Coats for Kids program.

The 128th has been collecting warm clothing for the Coats for Kids program now for eight years.

“For us, it`s about giving back to the community. We do our part here at home and overseas, so giving back is very important to us,” MSG Chance Biller with the 128th Air Refueling Wing said.

A few members of the 128th even knit scarves and mittens and donated those as well.
