Albany - Elementary school children have at least 40 new reasons to bundle up this winter. Members of Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity in Albany donated about 40 new coats to the Salvation Army this morning for school children whose families can't afford coats.
Trent Williams said, "It was an initiative that we started to try to give back to the community in another way."
"I work people in need everyday and it just works my heart over and makes me filled with such pride that an organization would give back so much more, especially people that have done so much before in other times, but they're still willing to give more and more in the community in such a selfless way," said Captain Douglas McClure of the Salvation Army.
This is the 4th year the fraternity has collected the coats. They hope to collect even more for children in need next year.
