(FOX11/ CNS) - A charitable group has found 1,000 new jackets for some often-cold and shivering children in Los Angeles, for the bargain price of $10 each, but is trying to come up with money to cover the bulk purchase.
Project Hardship2Hope delivered some of the new coats to a public school in a struggling neighborhood in Sylmar Monday, but is still coming up with funds to complete deliveries to 8 other schools in the San Fernando Valley and South Los Angeles, said spokesman Don DiSimone.
His family's foundation will match contributions to the coat drive on a dollar for dollar basis, DiSimone said.
The organization sent surveys to nine schools in low income areas, and 116 teachers requested a total of 1,100 jackets. A supplier will sell them the coats for $10 each, plus tax, DiSimone said.
