DETROIT (WWJ) - Could you imagine a child without a decent winter coat? Unfortunately, it’s all too common.
That’s why Happy’s Pizza and Greater Grace Temple have joined forces in “Happy’s Coats For Kids” Winter Coat Giveaway. They’ll provide 4,000 free, brand new winter coats for Detroit-area youngsters on Saturday, Nov. 26, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. for families with special vouchers, and from 4: 00 to 6 p.m. for those without vouchers while supplies last.
Here is the process: Financially struggling families may pick up a voucher at Happy’s Pizza locations in the Greater Detroit area beginning on Monday, Nov. 21. Parents must present the voucher between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. at the New Rogell Golf Course on Saturday, Nov. 26 to pick up a coat. For each voucher, a child must be present. Parents without vouchers may pick up coats while supplies last from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. For each coat, a child must be present.
The giveaway happens at the New Rogell Golf Course, 18601 Berg Road in Detroit.
This is the third year that Happy’s Pizza has partnered with Greater Grace Temple and retired Detroit Lion Lomas Brown. But this year, even more support is coming from the Detroit Lions with a special appearance by Maurice Morris. Volunteers from Bank of America and City Year will lend a helping hand as well.
After a 3 year effort, close to 12,000 young people have benefited from this outreach. The coats are for youngsters ages 3 to 13, sizes 2T to XXL, based on availability.
