New winter coats for Atlantic City students

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (WPVI) -- There are new winter coats for kids in Atlantic City, thanks to a family tradition.

Elijah Langford stopped at 3 locations Wednesday, including the Uptown School Complex, to hand out new outerwear.

Then he went to the Dr. MLK Jr school and the New York Avenue School.

His grandfather, the late William Lea, started the tradition 5 years ago at his barber shop.

Wednesday is the donor's mom's birthday too!
