Firefighters Give Winter Coats to Anderson Elementary Students

Posted: Updated:

A group of Washoe County elementary students are going to stay warm this winter thanks to Professional Fire Fighters of Nevada.

The "Coats for Kids" campaign reaches out to needy families by providing jackets for children ages three to 12.

And Tuesday, 50 students from Anderson Elementary in Reno got their coats hand-delivered by a group of local firefighters who also let them get up close to their fire trucks.

"To be warm for the winter, to come to school and be ready to learn and the other thing is to come out and meet a great group of guys who took some time to go out and do this for our students," says Anderson Assistant Principal Sean Whisler.

Firefighters at Anderson Elementary School told us seeing the kids shivering in the cold this morning made them realize how important this coat drive is.

The money to purchase them was donated by the Professional Fire Fighters of Nevada.
