MOTT HAVEN - Students at a Bronx school were the recipients of winter coats this morning thanks to a non-profit nationwide donation program. Volunteers from Operation Warm visited Haven Academy in Mott Haven to hand out nearly 200 coats. Founded in 1998, the organization provides winter coats for children living below the poverty line. "I like my coat, gloves and hat," one student said. "I never got a hat and coat before." Project organizers selected the school because 93 percent of the student body qualifies for a free or reduced-price lunch.
