(NEWS CENTER) -- Saturday is the big day -- we officially kick off the Coats and Toys for Kids campaign.

Every year, you show us how generous the people in this state are by donating thousands of new or gently worn coats, as well as toys for needy families. Several sponsors and local agencies help us collect, clean and distribute the coats-- which help Mainers have a safe and happy winter.

NEWS CENTER's Sarah Delage introduces us to one of those families. A single mother, and her two children who came to Maine with little more than the clothes on their backs.
