Warm for Winter gave families the chance to shop every last Saturday of the month since September.
This was the first time Samantha Coleman stopped by Warm for Winter.
She said she's heard about it for the last five years, but went this weekend because her kids are growing out of their clothes too quickly.

"It's really awesome that they do think of other people and their communities, because that's what makes a family. [It's] the community at the end of the day," said Coleman.
The clothing drive had clothes and toys for all ages.
