Brenda Warner showered University City students with affection and new coats Monday as she showed up at Operation Food Search to help with the 12th annual Warners’ Warm-up Coat Drive.
Students from Julia Goldstein Early Childhood Center walked over to OFS to meet Warner Monday morning. Each of the children received a new coat to take home with them. One generous preschooler told Warner she had a coat at home, but would take her new coat to school for someone else who might need it.
Warners’ Warm-up is a two-week coat drive from Nov. 1-14 encouraging Metro St. Louisans to donate new and gently-used winter coats for distribution by Operation Food Search to schools, homeless shelters and other social service agencies in time for the bitter cold winter months.
