A coat drive is underway in downtown Hartford and it's aiming to help children in need.

The "stuff the mini to the max" drive is under way at the Grand on Ann Apartments in partnership with the New Country Motor Car Group.

This year marks the event's third.

The Grand on Ann management said all of the coats will go to children in need who attend Hartford Public Schools.

"We hope to keep kids warm, you know," said Jay Tran, the Grand on Ann. "The weather's rough [and] the coat drive helps support the kids in the school system. So, we're hoping to get them some coats."

Organizers said the goal is to collect several car loads.

The effort continues at 201 Ann Uccello St. until 8 p.m.
