Hundreds of Winter Coats Donated to Unity Elementary
Some Sioux City children received the gift of warmth Tuesday.
Over 600 coats were donated to Unity Elementary School.
The coats were paid for by a $50,000 grant from UnitedHealthcare.
“It’s winter and children need a coat so what better opportunity to invest in the schools where there is a need for children?” said Katie Bonner, UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Iowa.
UnitedHealthcare said they were looking for a community that would benefit greatly from the donation.
They reached out to State Representative Chris Hall for help.
“We spoke with the principal here. We wanted to make sure that these coats would find a good home, that they were reaching kids that might be walking to and from school all winter. This is just a really nice opportunity to do something good.” said Rep. Chris Hall.
