4000 FREE Winter Coats for Kids on 11/26 - Get FREE Coat Vouchers on 11/21 at Greater Detroit Happy's Pizza locations

Happy's Pizza and Greater Grace Temple to giveaway 4,000 FREE winter coats to help low-income youth stay warm this winter

Could you imagine a child without a decent winter coat? It happens. That’s why Happy’s Pizza and Greater Grace Temple have joined forces in “Happy’s Coats For Kids” Winter Coat Giveaway. They’ll provide 4,000 “FREE” brand new winter coats for Detroit-area youngsters on Saturday, November 26, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. for families with special vouchers, 4pm to 6pm for those without vouchers while supplies last. The giveaway happens at the New Rogell Golf Course, 18601 Berg Road in Detroit.

“Happy’s Coats For Kids” is the pizza chain’s way of getting the holidays off to a great start, and meeting an important need in the community. This is the 3rd year that they have partnered with Greater Grace Temple and retired Detroit Lion Lomas Brown. This year more support from the Detroit Lions includes a special appearance by Maurice Morris. Volunteers from Bank of America and City Year will lend a helping hand as well.

“It is always a great feeling to assist people with some basic needs in life, and we are excited to provide thousands of kids this winter with a brand new coat,” says Greater Grace’s Senior Pastor Bishop Charles H. Ellis III.

After a 3 year effort, close to 12,000 young people have benefited from this outreach. The coats are for youngsters 3 – 13 years of age. Sizes (2T – 2X Large) based on availability.

Here is the process:

Financially struggling families may pick up a voucher at Happy’s Pizza locations in the Greater Detroit area beginning on Monday, November 21st.

Parents MUST present the voucher between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. at the New Rogell Golf Course on Saturday, November 26th to pick up a coat. For each voucher a child MUST be present.

Parents without vouchers may pick up coats while supplies last from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. For each coat a child MUST be present.
