James River is jumping into winter and cold weather by kicking it off with a coat drive. The Coat Drive committee, which includes senior Maki Urso, encourages everyone to bring gently used coats for those who will be greatly affected by the coming bitter weather. The coat drive started on November 10th and was extended to tomorrow, November 18th.
The committee is “working with Puritan Cleaners to supply local kids in need with coats,” said Urso.
Puritan Cleaners is a local laundry service that has a project called “Coats For Kids.” They clean thousands of coats for the Salvation Army, which are then donated to families in need.
“We wanted to help out in the community, and the coat drive seemed like the perfect idea as we transition into winter,” said Urso.
Donations should be dropped off in the main office or room 2407.
