As fall turns into winter, and Colorado temperatures drop, the winter weather attire starts to come out. It’s easy for most people to simply put on a coat in the morning and think nothing of it, but for others, coats and warm winter attire are hard to come by. This is exactly why Littleton High School is doing another coat drive.
Coats of any size, color or style can be donated to this coat drive, and it is all for a great cause.
“All of the coats that we collect are going to US veterans and their families,” said junior Ellie Monblatt, who is in charge of the coat donation.
Although the coat drive is just getting started, several students have already donated coats.
“We actually just started collecting donations so we have a few donations right now, but it goes until thanksgiving break so hopefully we will be able to collect lots more,” said Monblatt.
Even though donating a coat may not seem like a huge deal to most people, it has a great impact on the community.
“I think it’s important to give back to our community and this is a really good way to do that,” said Monblatt.
Donations can be made in the Library, the Cafeteria and in the Main Lobby in front of the Attendance Office. There are bins that are specifically labeled for the coat drive, and donations can be made up until Thanksgiving.
