"Many tears have been shed over this project and it's such a blessing in my life"
Chicago Housing Authority partnered with Operation Warm for the 8th year to deliver 10,000 new winter coats to over 5,000 CHA families.
"I think we forget that every town, everywhere in the world there are people that are in need," Thomas said. "If we can take care of some of those people, let's take care of those people. And if I can shave my beard off to do that, that is a small price to pay."
Thank you Duluth Firefighters Operation Warm!!
"It's different from a normal coat drive where you might donate used coats. These are brand new, American-made coats," Pekol explained. "The kids will get to pick them out. It raises their feelings of self-esteem, their feelings of pride."
From Saturday's big event in Chicago...
A big thanks to all the volunteers, corporate sponsors, social service agencies and philanthropists who made today's Chicago Housing Authority coat distribution and service fair a great success! #MorethanaCoat #coatsmatter
