OKLAHOMA CITY – As cold weather comes to town, a lot of families will immediately reach for a winter coat before heading outside.

Unfortunately, a coat is a necessity that many students in Oklahoma City may not have at home.

On Wednesday, Oklahoma City firefighters stopped by Hillcrest Elementary School to give each child a new winter coat.

According to Firefighter’s Local 157, more than 90 percent of the children in the school come from low-income families.

Firefighters teamed up with employees from Continental Resources and school volunteers to help each child find a coat.

“Oklahoma City’s firefighters are proud of the work they do in this community every day,” said Phil Sipe, president of the Firefighter’s Local 157. “But this program is a special way for us to give back and to see first hand the impact our efforts have on these kids.”
