they are trying to knock out. no, the kids are in the middle of another fight. in some cases it's cancer. for others it's a learning disability. >> this was just another way to reach them. >> reporter: jan sinclaire at the cancer support community and christine cleaver at camelot for children came together thinking there had to be a better way to teach. >> kick! >> and learn. >> whether they're ill or they have some sort of disability they're always hold that it's not as easy for them do. instilling that confidence helps them. >> blocking and striking medi, self-defense move. >> david namerov decided it was time to give back and after 30 years of martial arts training he never took on a challenge quite like this. >> i see the mind body coordination developing so even children that have special needs and coordination issues, it helps reestablish that link and i see improvement over when they
first started the program. >> mimi, come up here. >> reporter: for eight-year-old mimi, the idea of talking to me with a camera would have seemed impossible. but now -- >> really fun. >> very rewarding to see that sense of pride develop in them and see them go from somewhat shy to impressing and surprising themselves. >> bow. awesome job, guys. >> in the face of a constant battle. >> very good today. dismissed. >> reporter: in allentown -- >> other hand! there you go. >> reporter: -- matt delucia, nbc 10 news. >> the project is only being offered in allentown. we have more information about the free program if you go to nbc10.com. we want to take you back to breaking news we told you about not long ago. skyforce 10 is over the breaking news, a scene on the atlantic city expressway. this is happening in atlantic county. new jersey state police are on the scene of a deadly fiery crash at the egg harbor toll
plaza. we're told the driver died after crashing into a toll booth there before the vehicle caught on fire. no other injuries are being reported as we heard from first alert traffic reporter jessica boyington, traffic westbound is being diverted through the e-z pass lanes around the scene as it likely will be out there for time time. changing gears now. as the holiday shopping season begin, gift giving is very much on people's minds. it's black friday, right? but the local chapter of the american red cross wants to give something that means something. that's the theme of their holiday blood drive. here to tell us more about that is beth toll from the american red cross. thank you for joining us. i love your red today. >> thank you, thank you. >> dressed appropriately. this is a time, like we said, so many people have holiday gift giving, parties, this is a time where you don't see blood donation. >> right, this is a challenging time for us collecting blood. people are traveling, there's holiday parties, winter weather
isn't here yet but it's coming and that causes blood drive and of course seasonal illnesses like the flu. so we want to encourage people to give something that means something and donate blood to help save lives. >> and you're offering people incentives to do that. >> we are. right now we have a special mixing spoon and a celebrity recipe card while supplies last, of course. we're giving these to donors through sunday so anyone that comes out to red cross blood drive will receive these items as a special way to say thank you for coming out during this critical time period to donate blood. >> hopefully people will see this plea and put it on their to-do list. what are the requirements for donating blood? >> you need to be 17 years old but you can be 16 with parental consent. just generally healthy and you can go on line at redcrossblood.org to make your donation appointment or denate our app or call 1-800-red cross
to make those appointments. >> does your need increase during the holidays? >> not necessarily increase but because donations go down because people are involved in other activities it's more challenging to get people in the door to rep to make those appointments to donate blood because patients in need don't get a break and they still need those blood products. have you offered an incentive like this before? >> we have. it's a great way to say thank you to our donors and give them extra incentive to come in and donate. >> beth toll with the american red cross thank you so much for joining us. good afternoon, temperatures today expected to get pretty close to our report so near record warmth expected for us today. temperatures well above average, pushing into the mid to high 60s for parts of the area. i'm tracking changes already, weekend showers expected, we'll cool things down as we head into
your saturday and sunday and monday. for philadelphia we're at 56 already so comfortable conditions, a mix of sun and clouds. wind speeds are light out of the west at six miles per hour. across the rest of the area 56 in the poconos, mid-50s in trenton. 65 in atlantic city. 65 in wilmington and 59 in dover. so not too bad out there if you're heading out to do shopping. up 11 degrees in the poconos. four degrees in allentown. so we're warmer right now than this time yesterday. notice those clouds moving in from the west but lots of sunshine today and we'll stay nice and dry. we have an area of thap will continue to pull away from us and then we have this storm hearing impaired that will move closer to us. in fact, this is going to be a trouble spot for any folks traveling into this location. if you have loved ones in the northern part of texas, parts of oklahoma we have an ice storm
warning until saturday at noon. that will lead to a few delays is. as we take a closer look at what happens, it will progress as there's a cold front associated with it. that will move through into the weekend. it will trigger showers before and after the cold front so we have the poconos around 11:00 a.m. same thing for allentown and lancaster closer to 8:00 p.m. on saturday. philadelphia will see light rain showers. you can see these are spotty short-lived showers. and once again 8:00 a.m. another round for philadelphia and this time it's to the south of philadelphia. south jersey. the shore, central southern parts of delaware, even northern delaware like wilmington. by 6:007:00 p.m. we have skies clearing up. highs around the region will push to 67 in philadelphia. low is 60s for allentown, 61 in wilmington and tomorrow more 50s
on the map. temperatures drop about 10 degrees. as far as today is concerned, 65 to 68, unseasonably warm. a warmer more moist air coming from the southwest that will help us out with the mild conditions but that cold front and chance of showers moves through dropping temperatures into the 50s and we stay there into next week.
>> best the show tonight is the skye terrier. >> the skye kerrier, best in show. >> that's charlesedly skye terrier who won best in show at this year's national dog show. the kennel club of philadelphia hosts the show at the greater philadelphia expo center and it airs right here on nbc 10 every thanksgiving. you may not have realized this -- i don't know why you would have -- but there's another industry cashing in big on black friday. it's very hectic for plumbers. that's because preparing and cleaning up the turkey day feast sends a lot of food and scraps down the drain. some plumbing experts say the number of service calls doubles the day after thanksgiving. who knew? >> i really like that last -- that last piece of video at the
end that paints the picture. >> paints a great picture. hopefully everyone got outside and enjoyed thanksgiving because we saw comfortable and mild conditions and it gets better today. unseasonably warm for us. temperatures will range between 65 and 68 so the warmer side of things the average is low 50s. but our temperatures drop 10 degrees into the weekend plus a chance of showers on saturday and another chance of showers sunday. temperatures drop down more with the cold front that will move through so wind speeds pick up throughout the weekend as well. and then that cooler air will stick around we head into next week. 50 degrees by the time you head back to work so you have to enjoy the 60s because that's it, they're not in the seven day. >> it still looks okay. we'll take it.
