Last fall when the air became brisk, Jeremy Walker opened his children's closets and took out their coats, only to find they had outgrown the nearly new jackets. And just like that, the idea of the Walker Family Coat Drive was born. Jeremy said, "I knew if I was buying coats that were hardly worn before they were outgrown, there must be other families that were experiencing the same thing. I put together an exchange idea and got permission to do it during the Lions Club Car Show. We took in over 104 coats last year, 40 of which were re-distributed in the community and the rest I took to the soup kitchen in Pueblo."
