GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Two years ago, a Fruita Monument High School student was lost in an accident, but the tragic event hasn't stopped her family and friends from continuing her efforts to pay it forward.
Caitlyn True was just a senior when she fell out of a moving car. But before the accident, she had a desire to bring coats and blankets to the homeless, and it was a dream that's lived on.
"She was just one of those kids that always thought a lot about other people," said her mother Dana True, "so I think it's really fitting. Somebody said it was her legacy, and I thought 'You know, that's a neat way to put it.'"
The third annual coat drive started as a school service project. Students collected coats, blankets, sleeping bags, gloves and more to give to local charities in Grand Junction.
