Fundraising efforts from Duquesne Light and the firefighters made it possible to provide the coats.

“The firefighters work all year long to fundraise for this program they do it in other locations around the city and it’s great to be a small part of making a kid’s day, when they get to pick a coat with the color they like, it really makes your heart feel good,” Sen. Williams said.
