HIGH POINT, N.C. — The High Point Bank on Wednesday morning stopped by the FOX8 Studios to present a check to The Salvation Army for the Give A Kid A Coat campaign.

This year, the annual campaign netted more than 20,000 coats for families in need.  The coats are being cleaned by A Cleaner World before The Salvation Army sorts them for distribution.

Monetary donations were also accepted at High Point Bank branches.  Nearly $5,000 was raised from the community.  High Point Bank contributed extra funds to round the contributions up to an even $5,000.

The donations will be used to purchase additional coats.

The check presentation can be viewed in the video above.
