Colder weather has arrived… and potentially hundreds of local schoolkids don’t have adequate winter coats for the chilly weather.
A Riverton schoolteacher has started a push to collect coats for children in needs. Tracy Day approached the Green Family Stores about providing coats for up to 100 kids in the Riverton school district. The Green Stores, in cooperation with Wal-Mart and Burlington Coat Factory, was able to provide those coats and to help the Matthew Project, which assists homeless students in Springfield schools.
Now the coat drive is seeking public donations. New coats for kids can be dropped off at any Green dealership in Springfield… used coats can be taken to Burlington Coat Factory.
