Fort Worth, Texas, December 6, 2022 – Witherite Law Group and 1-800-TruckWreck partnered with Fort Worth ISD to provide coats for kids as the winter months approach. The coat giveaway was held on Saturday, December 3rd at the Stallion Pointe Apartment Clubhouse, 9053 S. Race St., Fort Worth, TX.  More than 300 brand new coats were given to youth and young adults, grades Pre-K to 12th grade, from the Stop Six community in Fort Worth, Texas.

The event space was organized like a traditional department store with coats sorted by size and color on clothing racks.  Upon entry, recipients were greeted by a volunteer and escorted to choose their brand-new coat.  Thanks to local vendors, the children also enjoyed food, bounce houses, holiday music, and photos with Santa.

For many years, Witherite Law Group and 1-800-TruckWreck has provided coats for Fort Worth ISD students during the holiday season, donating more than 1800 coats over the years, totaling more than $60,000.

Temperatures in Tarrant County can get to near freezing between November and February. Without the proper attire, children are more susceptible to weakened immune systems, which may result in illness.  Unfortunately, many students do not own or have access to an adequate coat to keep them healthy, comfortable and warm.

“This coat giveaway is very near to my heart because my mom taught school in the Stop Six community, so I feel a deep connection to the children and families who live there,” said Amy Witherite, founder of Witherite Law Group and 1-800-TruckWreck.  “We’re grateful to Fort Worth ISD and look forward to continuing our partnership to ensure the needs of our community are met.”

Fort Worth ISD Family Acton Center and Witherite Law Group worked with the Fort Worth Housing Solutions and case managers through Urban Strategies Inc. to help identify and register students from the area who needed coats. In addition to the coat giveaway, Witherite Law Group and 1-800-TruckWreck recently made sure 1,300 families had turkeys on the table for Thanksgiving.

In addition to the coat giveaway, Witherite Law Group and 1-800-TruckWreck are working with many partners in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. They are also working in partnership with Fort Worth ISD Family Action Center to support 20 schools in Fort Worth Independent School District.
