TROY - With power still an issue for thousands of storm victims, a local company is doing its part to help keep those affected, stay warm.

Rainbow Cleaners in Troy is donating coats from its Coats for Kids campaign, to those in need down in New York City and New Jersey.

Owner Allen Patanian says people have donated dozens of coats and this is the least they could do.

A cleaning supplies distributor out of New Jersey that they work with, is driving here to pick up the coats.

From there, they will be taken to the cleaners association in Manhattan and distributed to families in need.
