Koos for Kids Donates Coats to all Julian Thomas Students
Marcus Hanel, bullpen catcher for the Milwaukee Brewers and a Horlick High School graduate, donated winter coats to every student at Julian Thomas Elementary School on Nov. 27 through his charity "Koos for Kids." The mission of Koos for Kids is to enhance the quality of life for terminally ill and disadvantaged children in southeastern Wisconsin.
Before making the surprise announcement at an assembly that all Julian Thomas students would receive a coat, Hanel spoke to the students about the importance of getting a good education and surrounding yourself with the right people. He also told the students that "teamwork makes the dream work," reinforcing the idea that working together and for the good of everyone is important.
Thank you, Marcus Hanel and Koos for Kids, for keeping all Julian Thomas students warm!
