Coats being collected to help Sandy victims

LAKEWOOD RANCH - It's been nearly a month since Superstorm Sandy battered the east coast, but the help for victims is still rolling in along the Suncoast. And now, even a former NBA referee is joining the effort.

Bob Delaney -- now an "NBA Cares" ambassador -- is hosting the organization's annual coat drive to benefit Sandy victims. “We have great weather down here, thanks to Bob Harrigan. So our hope is, let's open up our closets, open up our hearts, and give our coats to our brothers and sisters up north who are going to have a tough winter because of that storm and the loss of all their own personal clothing,” says Delaney.

Coats can be dropped off Sunday, December 2nd from 11am to 4pm at Ed's Tavern in Lakewood Ranch. That's located on Main Street.
