On October 10, 2018, Ben Simmons of the Philadelphia 76ers surprised the students of William Cramp Elementary School with 750 brand new winter coats.
The event built on Simmons’ service in the Philadelphia community. Last winter, the 2018 Kia NBA Rookie of the Year surprised four families from South Philadelphia with a holiday shopping spree.
“These are the moments I look forward to all season. Thank you to the Sixers and Operation Warm for helping me make sure we get coats to kids that need them.”
