AUSTIN -- KVUE's Coats for Kids drive is coming to an end. But with our final attempt, there was a little incentive for donors.

On Wednesday Rudy's BBQ in North Austin offered a free breakfast taco to anyone who donated a coat or money.

In 2011 KVUE was able to give coats to 30,000 kids in the community on distribution day. KVUE will hand out coats on Saturday. The same amount of kids, if not more, are expected this year.

But hundreds of coats are still needed. Right now 28,804 coats have been donated. At least 1,200 more are needed.

Anyone can drop off a gently used or brand new coat at any Jack Brown Cleaners location until 7 p.m. Wednesday or at the KVUE studios until 5 p.m.
