WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- With temperatures expected to drop well into the single digits, one Winston-Salem woman is making sure some less fortunate individuals are able to stay warm.

Cindy Jones, the "Coat Lady," has been hitting flea markets all over the Piedmont for the last couple of years to purchase coats and shoes for homeless people.

After Jones brings the clothes home and cleans them, a neighbor takes them to The Shalom Project, a food pantry and clothing closet at Green Street United Methodist Church.

Jones says in the past two years she has donated more than 250 coats and 100 pairs of shoes.
