Gift certificates given to One Warm Coat donors

SAN JOSE, CA

That's the idea behind a program for the needy called "One Warm Coat."

In San Jose, dozens of people dropped off new or slightly used coats at Santana Row and in exchange, they were given a gift certificate worth as much as $100. Volunteers collected dozens of coats, which will help keep someone warm this winter.

The program started in San Francisco and has spread across the nation. If you want to help, you can click on the link below.
