ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - A nonprofit in Roanoke is making sure no child goes without a coat this winter.

The Humble Hustle Company collected over 200 new coats for kids of two elementary schools. And more than 50 kids received their coats with big smiles at Belle Academy Wednesday.

“I’m feeling happy. I like my coat and I think it’s really cool,” said Belle Academy student DJ Russell.

The Winter Coat Drive is part of their Keep Giving Initiatives, which are aimed at helping kids and teens in Roanoke.

“It’s joy. It’s joy. It’s fulfillment. It’s like our slogan keep giving. We’re doing exactly what we’re founded to do. We’re staying in line with our mission,” said founder Xavier Duckett.

The non-profit will distribute over 200 coats at Fallon Park Elementary Friday.

“So, seeing the kids pop a tag or pick the coat that they want. We know that we’re doing what we’re supposed to do,” added Duckett.
