"All of the old ones at my house my mom has to keep washing, they're all old. Now I have a brand new one," said Iyannah Butler.
It's all a part of the "Keeping Kids Warm Program" supported by Bensalem-based Charming Shoppes Inc. which includes Lane Bryant and Fashion Bug stores.
"Every child deserves a brand new coat that's picked out for them and by them and that's not a hand-me-down, that's what's exciting about it," explained Robin Taylor Plimpton, Lane Bryant district manager.
Principal Anita Duke says many of her students simply can't afford the luxury of a new coat.
"We have some parents who are working two jobs and struggling to provide for their children and this is a blessing."
The program is giving away 10,000 coats nationwide to keep kids warm but also to let them know that someone cares.
