FRUITA, Colo. (KKCO) - Before she tragically lost her life, 17-year-old Caitlyn True was working on a project to get warm coats to those in need.

Friends and family are continuing Caitlyn's Caring & Sharing Warm Hearts Project. The community is asked to donate clean coats and blankets that are in good condition.

Drop off locations include:
11News, 2531 Blichmann Ave.
Judy's Restaurant, Fruita
Glow Salon
True Chiropractic
Fruita Monument High School (Commons Area)
Absolute Dance
Moose Radio

Donations will be accepted until Nov. 15. Coats for children and adults are needed.

Caitlyn died of injuries she suffered after falling out of a moving vehicle early Saturday morning. Her family says she was a talented artist and dancer.

She was an organ donor.

Brian Hodges, owner of 32 Road Laundry, is offering free laundering of any blankets or coats you'd like to donate to Caitlyn's effort. He says you simply need to drop the donated item off with him at the laundromat near the corner of 32 and D 1/4 Roads and he will launder it and take it to a collection location.
