School collecting Coats for Kids donations

Continue reading below

Watertown Middle School is collecting winter jackets for its annual Coats for Kids community service project. Donations can be dropped off at a collection area near the school’s main office and the courtyard door. The drive will end on Jan. 12, according to the school. Organizers are seeking gently used heavy winter coats in any size, and without any stains, rips, or broken zippers. The drive is facilitated by Anton’s Cleaners, which has 42 locations across New England. Last year, 261 schools and 315 corporate and community offices collected, cleaned, and distributed more than 56,300 coats for families in need of assistance, according to the dry-cleaning company. Watertown Middle School last year placed second in the number of coats collected by students, and was rewarded with a $250 cash prize, a $250 gift card toward school supplies, and a pizza party, according to Anton’s.
