The recent coat drive for Hoopeston Area CUSD #11 students has been very successful. The goal now is to get the coats distributed!
Between now and December 6, coats will be offered to students in need. District families are also welcome to stop by the Hoopeston Area Middle School Office to make selections between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. weekdays. All coats that remain after Dec. 6 will be available between performances at the Cornjerker Christmas event on Sunday, Dec. 8, in the Middle School Gym.
Nearly 100 new and gently used coats, jackets and hoodies were donated. Sizes range from 2T to 3XL. Community Liaison, Amy Linares, said she was very pleased with the quality and condition of the donations. “The response to this request has been wonderful. We appreciate the efforts of all who assisted with the drive or made the much-needed donations,” she said.
