Wanda Lopez grew tired of seeing children shivering at the bus stops.
She set aside a couple thousand dollars and purchased hundreds of brand-new coats. With the help of local organizations, she assembled 250 hot meals, 200 turkeys and boxes of canned food, and put it all out on display Friday in a North Charleston parking lot.
Lopez worried the frigid rain would keep people away. But within hours, all of the food and most of the clothes were gone.
“This is blowing my mind,” Lopez said. “So many people need hats, coats, gloves, boxed food. Basic things.”
