Two-time Paralympic Judo bronze medalist, Dartanyon Crockett hosted his fourth annual coat drive on Friday at Stratton Meadows Elementary School in Colorado Springs, Colo. In partnership with the Springs Rescue Mission, the coat drive provided over 130 coats, scarves and hats to children attending the school. In the past three years, Dartanyon has collected over 600 items to share with homeless individuals and those in need of warm clothing for the winter season. 

In the fourth installment of his annual coat drive, Crockett surprised students at Stratton Meadows Elementary School where he helped fit and style grateful recipients with donated winter wear. If you missed any of the exciting social media action, check it out below. 

We thank everyone for helping the Colorado Springs community and Dartanyon’s effort to make a difference.
