96.1 The Breeze is assisting News 4 Buffalo again this year in soliciting donations for Colvin Cleaner’s Coats 4 Kids.

But probably not to the extent that a 12 year old Tonawanda girl has personally done.

12-year-old Julianna Greenert found out she had to do a service project to earn her first degree black belt, and already had an idea of what she wanted to do.

“I get to help anyone that’s in need that needs warm stuff,” Greenert said.

Julianna immediately enlistied the help of her mother Jocelyn Beck, who reached out to Facebook groups asking for used coats, scarves and gloves and got to work collecting items from friends, family and schoolmates.

“I collected one hundred eighteen coats, thirty-two hats, thirteen gloves, twenty scarves, six snow pants and seven pairs of boots,” Greenert said.

Beck tells News 4 she’s very proud of her daughter’s accomplishment and selflessness.

“I thought it was great because the program has been around for years, and to know there is that kind of need in the community, I was glad she wanted to help,” Beck said.
