Kars4Kids car donation program and Mayor Cory Booker’s coat giveaway for the needy in Newark drew a huge crowd today at the JFK recreation center. Thousands are estimated to have participated, with lines stretching down the block and around the corner, with more than enough coats to go around.
“The crowd was great today”, a Kars4Kids spokesman said, “no pushing or shoving, it was very orderly, and there was a real sense of holiday cheer in the air.”
Kars4Kids partnered with Mayor Cory Booker for the giveaway, and the Mayor was there giving out coats and spreading around his trademark smile.
Kars4Kids and Mayor Booker’s office are already thinking ahead for coat giveaway 2012, when Kars4Kids hope there are less people who need, and more who have the ability to give.
