Thanks for a Successful Clothing Drive!
Tuesday, December 18, 2018 9:05 AM

Thank you to all who donated warm clothing to our school clothing drive. We collected more than twenty loads of jackets, snowpants, mittens, hats, scarves, boots, and socks. A van full of items was distributed to MPS nurses from more than twelve schools.  
 
"Every last jacket, sock, and mitten was scooped up," said Jenny Hokanson, the Licensed School Nurse at Webster Elementary. "Several nurses told me specifically how touched they were by this generosity. The need is great in many of our schools, so thank you!"  We even got items after our donation deadline, and those five bags were donated to Hats & Mittens, a local charity that distributes warm clothing to homeless school-age kids. Thank you to the Burroughs community for helping keep kids warm this winter!
