The Chicago Housing Authority continued a heartwarming -- and body-warming -- tradition Saturday.

For the fourth consecutive year, the CHA gave away new, free winter coats.

Ten thousand public housing residents who registered in advance took advantage of the annual giveaway called Operation Warm Coat. It was held in the University of Illinois at Chicago Forum.

There were other supplies for the residents, including free bags of groceries.
