The Sixers have announced that their second annual “Coats for Kids” event will take place Wednesday, October 16, from 9:30 – 11:00 a.m. Ben Simmons will donate over 600 brand new winter coats to students at Henry C. Lea Elementary School in West Philadelphia.

Simmons and the 76ers are partnering with Operation Warm, a national nonprofit that provides brand new, high-quality coats for children-in-need, to make the donation possible.

In the past two years more than 1,200 Philadelphia elementary school students have received a brand new winter coat.
