Asking for a Little Warmth

Sometimes, one warm coat can make all the difference.

The Pottstown High School Interact Club is sponsoring a coat drive for the needy and a book drive for the read-y.

OK, that last one was pretty bad. We're getting a little punchy these days over in the Digital Notebook's editorial complex.

Anyway, as Marilyn Bainbridge, who teaches childcare at the high school and is the club's advisor notes, "on a cold day there is nothing better than bundling up in a warm coat.

So if you've got an old coat in the your closet that doesn't fit anymore, or has fallen out of your fashion sense, you can drop if off in the lobby of Franklin Elementary School until Nov. 1.

The coats will be provided to the Pottstown Cluster Outreach Center and the Salvation Army.

And while you're at it, cleaning out your closets that is, why not take some of those children's books you don't need any more, specifically the ones for ages birth through the fourth grade, and drop them off as well.

Because apparently, the club is also conducting a children's book drive.

  1. I have two coats to donate but they need zipper repairs. Do they have someone offering this service?
