Coat Closet News

Our closet held more than 50 jacket/hat/mitten “sets” at the beginning of the cold weather season. Thanks to all who contributed. Now it’s time to replenish our supply, to keep local growing kids warm.

Please consider donating jackets (we can wash and repair), and consider shopping at garage sales, resale shops, donation centers (like the Salvation Army stores), or your own closets to help us have coats on hand for cold kids.

The most needed sizes are children’s 8-16, youth and adult sizes. “Z-M Cougar” wear welcomed. There is also a high demand for waterproof gloves for elementary students.

The Closet is located on the lower level “hallway” and items can be left there.

Thank you,
Mary Goplen and Deb Wilkinson
