Winter Coats for Kids
CPS is collecting coats, gloves, hats, and other winter apparel for students in temporary living situations, many of whom do not have access to quality winter wear. We’re reaching out to community members all across the city to join our effort and contribute to Winter Coats for Kids before the drive ends on March 1.
“The coats were greatly appreciated by parents and students. Many of our students wear hoodies because they say they don’t have coats. The children that were given the coats felt good about themselves.”A teacher whose STLS students received winter coats from last year’s drive.
“As a staff member, it was amazing to see students that received coats to smile and be so happy to receive the coats that they needed. Students were showing off their new coats with such pride and happiness.”A teacher whose STLS students received winter coats from last year’s drive.
