Coats for Kids underway
The Waupaca High School Student Council teams up with Gunderson Cleaners each year to collect new or gently used coats, scarves, mittens and snow pants to give to those in need in the local area.
Gunderson Cleaners will first clean all gently used items and then distribute them to area schools.
Students have placed donation boxes in all Waupaca school buildings, at Piggly Wiggly and the Waupaca Area Public Library.
The last day to donate is Friday, Nov. 16.
Families who are in need of winter clothing may contact Anne Collins-Reed, Waupaca School District social worker, at 715-258-4141 or 715-258-4131 before Thanksgiving.
