ALBANY - An Albany businesswoman's desire to help veterans has come to fruition.

Kaitlyn Drobner owns PG's Café.

She's started a program with Albany County called Katie's Koats. You donate a new or gently used coat, Best Cleaners cleans them free of charge and they are given to the homeless and to veterans in need.

There are three drop-off locations in Albany at the lobbies of 112 State St., the Department of Social Services building on Washington Avenue and Department of Health on Green Street.
