CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — An area barber has stepped up to help fight that problem by providing cold-weather gear to those who need it the most.

Nick Garcia realizes that even though the first day of winter already has passed, cold days still are ahead.

That’s why he raised enough funds to help those who need winter gear.

The Alice barber was able to raise $1,200, and with that money, he was able to buy jackets, sweatpants and gloves, along with much more.

Garica handed these items out at the Salvation Army. This is the sixth year Garcia has made this donation.

“I thought, it's like 3 o'clock it's going to be freezing tonight, so I thought they need clothing for 30-degree weather,” says Garcia.

The men who were able to receive these donations said this act of kindness is appreciated.

“I feel like God has blessed me himself, but he uses all these people as his vessels,” says donation recipient Andrew Villarreal.

Garcia adds that none of this would've been possible without the many businessmen from Alice who gave a cash contribution.
