highlights extreme need in our cities. Tonight, Howard Monroe-Gray reports
from Newark, where a coat giveaway brought out hundreds of people.

forget, as Kars for Kids showed up with free winter coats.

is all about.

Howard: Clifford Meth is the spokesman for the non-profit. The line
wrapped around the block outside Covenant House, which serves the homeless,
and some 600 coats will be given out. But while free coats is good news,
the bad news, they say, is the extreme need in a city like Newark.

Dave: Obviously you can see by the line and the semi chaos out here that
you could there's a huge need in the city.

Howard: Dave Hall is the site director at the Newark location.

Dave: It's winter time, it's Christmas time, there's a lot or people out
here who need coats for their family, for their daughters, you know, for
their sisters, you know, everybody is trying to get a little bit of
something, go get some holiday cheer.

such as this one, never have to happen again. Newark Deputy Mayor

with County of Essex, but there is still so much to be done.
