Winters can be brutally cold in Milwaukee. Like minus 26 degrees below zero, the coldest temperature recorded there. So for 35 years, WITI, Nexstar’s Fox affiliate, has been collecting and giving away hundreds of thousands of coats to area children through its FOX6 Coats for Kids drive.
This year, FOX6 Coats for Kids is expected to deliver more than 10,000 coats to area children. For the second consecutive year, WITI also partnered with Operation Warm to collect money to purchase new coats and raised nearly $35,000.
“The goal is to get as many coats in the hands of those who need them as possible,” said Chuck Steinmetz, WITI’s general manager.
“Adding a phone bank to the collection efforts means that those who want to give but don’t have a coat to donate, can still help. Our viewers again showed their generosity with their donations.”
