DETROIT, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- It is no secret that Michigan has been among the hardest hit regions economically, rising unemployment, major businesses leaving the area, and foreclosures. Metropolitan area Detroiters have found themselves shuffling limited resources just to survive. During this bitter cold season, needy school children will brave the cold to get to school and some will stay home due to lack of proper warm clothing.

On Monday, January the 18th at 11AM, hundreds of needy children will be able to get a brand new coat free due to a very special partnership.

The Kmart partnership with WADL-TV38 in this noble undertaking further reinforces what community commitment is about states Lewis Gibbs President of WADL-TV38.

"The economy and the extreme pressure on auxiliary services and organizations that help the community are tremendous.  We consider ourselves fortunate that someone from our community would be so generous for the benefit of Detroit's school children," states Denise Dody Johnson Marketing and Public Relations Director.

Any family receiving assistance from the department of family services will be able to get a brand new coat. You must bring your medical card, your child, and your id to the Kmart store located on Telegraph and 8 Mile.

Good while supplies last.
