FALLBROOK, Calif. — As temperatures drop across San Diego County, the Fresh & Easy market in Fallbrook and North County Lifeline teamed up to collect and distribute coats and jackets to local families in need.

Fresh & Easy at 1101 S. Main Ave. will accept donated new jackets and winter coats through Thursday. Officials with nonprofit North County Lifeline said their organization would then distribute the winter wear to those sleeping in their vehicles and other needy families.

North County Lifeline said that jackets of any size could be donated, but warm waterproof kids jackets were particularly needed.
