Students at Gilbert Spruance Elementary School, 6401 Horrocks St., on Friday received free winter coats courtesy of car guy Gary Barbera and state Rep. Jared Solomon.
The event was part of the annual Gary Barbera Coats for Kids, as part of the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation.
“Our winter coat giveaway is one of our most important grassroots partnerships with Rep. Jared Solomon,” Barbera said. “Giving brand new coats to students who truly need them and feeling their excitement and seeing their smiles in return – that’s a memorable experience for the kids and for us right here in our local neighborhood.”
This initiative is part of the Barbera Cares Program that Barbera started years ago. ••
