A South Side church is making sure students will be warm this winter by hosting a coat drive.

The "Operation Love a Child" coat drive was held Sunday morning at Mount Vernon Baptist Church.

Local faith leaders invited Chicago Public School students and their families who do not have the funds to purchase new winter coats.

The coat drive runs through December 8.
