"I'm happy for all friends that will get jackets like this."
Eight year old Fatima Martinez was one of hundreds of students in the central unified school district to receive a free coat Wednesday.
"I was so excited I was about to scream," Martinez said.
Thanks to a donation of 15,000 dollars by Granville Homes to the Coats for Kids program, low income students at 22 schools within Central Unified, including Roosevelt Elementary School received much needed warm clothing.
Mark Sutton, superintendent of Central Unified School District, said the donation makes a big difference in the lives of students.
"With the weather turning as it has the last few days its important for our kids to have something to put on and be warm," Sutton said.
The generous gift was something parents including Juana Remijio said they truly appreciate because it will not only benefits her daughter but other students as well.
"Que bien porque va ha ayudar a los niños ahora con el frío," Remijio said.
