This will be the third year that Bill Lee and I are partnering with Denison's First Baptist Church's "Jackets for Jackets" drive, benefiting our Denison Yellow Jackets students. We asking for for donations of jackets for the children, who for whatever reason need a coat for the winter. Bill and I are kicking off our annual coat drive at the Denison Fall Fest and ending at Veterans day.
Last year we ended up with 255 jackets and coats of all sizes.
First Baptist had the first 2 give-away events the third weekend of November in which they gave away 154 of the coats. They continued to give away coats through the rest of the winter months.
Thanks to collection partners who allow us to place a box in their establishment.
