Detroit Lions players hand out winter coats to city's kids

A Detroit-area pizza chain partnered with Lions players to hand out 4,000 winter coats to city's youth on Saturday. The giveaway was sponsored by Happy's Pizza, who reportedly paid $75,000 to fund the fourth annual event.

Wide receivers Titus Young and Nate Burleson, linebacker Stephen Tulloch, and running back Joique Bell were among the Lions player who chipped in to volunteer their time. They were also joined by volunteers from Greater Grace Temple and some Detroit firefighters to help distribute the much-needed outerwear.

With the frigid cold air of winter drawing near, it's good to know that these kids will be ready for it.
