Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to go to dozens of schools and visit with thousands of kids, all while talking about the weather. The question I’m asked most frequently is: “What is the best part about being on TV?” My answer is usually “Well, I really like being able to guide people through the roughest of weather, helping to keep them safe."
Even when the economy is robust, thousands of Metro area kids go hungry and unprotected from the elements. Now, as we continue to endure some extraordinarily tough times, the need has never been greater. People that had in the past donated to the needy are now needy themselves. I am proud to be using the “power” of television to make our neighbors aware of this and to help area kids stay warm during the coming winter.
I urge you to go through your closets and consider donating any of your “gently used” coats to our “Coats for Kids” drive. If you are shopping for the holidays and can afford to pick up a new coat to donate, that too would be welcomed. You never know, you might just be helping out a neighbor this holiday season.
