NORFOLK, Va. – Every child deserves a warm winter, and one local theater is taking action to make sure they get one.

On Saturday, November 23 at 10 a.m., Naro Expanded Cinema will hold a holiday coat drive at a screening of the documentary “21 and Done.”

Tickets for the screening are $7 and $5 with a student ID. Admission is free if you bring a coat to donate.

The mission of the fundraiser and coat drive is to raise awareness and provide support as well as new and gently used coats to local youth in foster care. All donations are tax-deductible.
