Donate Winter Coats At Harrison High School
By Mike Perleberg
(Harrison, Oh.) – Harrison High School students’ service project will help keep local kids warm this winter.
The freshmen class’ annual Winter Coat Drive is going on now.
Donations of new and gently-used coats, hats, gloves, and more should be delivered to William Henry Harrison High School, 9860 West Road, by Thursday, December 14. Just drop them in the large blue bin in the lobby outside the main office.
The coats, gloves and other winter wear will be given to the Harrison Mayor’s Fund for distribution to local families in need.
The community service project is one of three annual district-wide collaborations, intended to benefit the community as well as to develop in students a sense of compassion and civic connectedness. The projects help enhance the students’ social growth, a mission of Southwest Local School District.
Each year during the holiday season, the Southwest Local School District, coordinates collection of winter coats, scarves, mittens and other clothing items in support of the Mayor’s Fund. The fund, together with local churches and schools, provide assistance in the form of food, clothing, winter coats and toys to hundreds of families.
