McCleskey Middle School is supporting Vining's Church annual Coats for Kids project. The project provides needed coats for underprivileged children across the county. The project works like this: there will be a large red box located outside McCleskey's front office for children and parents to place gently used coats for children of any age (toddler to teenager). The box will be picked up on regularly scheduled dates and taken to a Vining's Church distribution location.
The coat collection continues until Jan. 15. The coats will be distributed to kids on three separate dates: Dec. 1, Dec. 15 and Jan. 15.
Last year over 2,000 coats were given to needy children.
Vining's Church is working with approximately 25 Cobb County schools and 25 local businesses on Coats for Kids project.
McCleskey is collecting food for the needy this holiday season. Each homeroom has a designated food item to bring. The donation of canned and non-perishable food is appreciated.
