Wednesday, 06 November 2013 07:26 Published in Local News

Super Bowl MVP Kurt Warner continues to have a positive impact in the community through his charity that provides winter coats to those in need. Today Warner's Warm-up Coat Drive received a large donation from a local textile recycling company. USAgain has been collecting gently used coats at its 400-plus recycling bins around the city. Sunny Schaefer is the executive director of Operation Food Search, a partner with Warner's charity. 

 

"We are being deluged with people calling looking for coats for children, their grandmother, so many people are struggling right now," Schaefer said. "This couldn't have come at a better time."

 

Warner's Warm-Up was founded in 2001. A complete list of locations where you can drop off winter coats for donation can be found at Kurt and Brenda Warner's website, kurtwarner.org.

A card game at a home in Wildwood ended on Sunday when one of the players shot another man in the side. It happened Sunday night in the 100 block of Franklin Avenue in the Glencoe area of Wildwood. Police say 37-year-old Alfred Castro got into an argument at the table, then went to his room and returned with a .38-caliber revolver. He then shot the 45-year-old male victim, who was later dropped off at a police station in Ellisville. Police found Castro several hours later with the weapon still in his possession. He is currently awaiting trial on a felony drug case in St. Louis County.
