    "This is truly one of our favorite events of the year," said Capt. Jason Tucker, IAFF Local 3219 president, in a statement. "We love to see all the smiles when the kids pick up their coats. We also know the coats will mean these families can use their limited resources on other needs this holiday season."

    Since 2012, the International Association of Fire Fighters and Operation Warm have given winter coats to more than 200,000 children.
