Chicago Coffee Shop Owner Collects 6,000 Warm Coats for the Homeless & Delivers With Coffee

Peter Thomas owns Pilot Pete's Coffee & Treats in Elmhurst, Illinois. He's created an outlet for his customers to give back through his "Coffee With a Purpose" program, which donates 20% of the shop's proceeds toward efforts to support Chicago's homeless.



Every other week during Chicago's harsh winters, Pete rents a semi truck and brings hot coffee, warm coats, and other essential supplies to the city's homeless population.
