Early last spring, when the department stores had their winter clearance sales, a Franklin couple went shopping for winter coats.
They weren’t looking for new coats for themselves or their children. Rather, they were looking for inexpensive new winter wear that they could donate to Operation Bundle Up, a program of United Way of Johnson County.
The coats, still in their protective plastic covers, have been hanging in a closet ever since. Soon, the couple will get the coats out and take them to a donation center.
