Coat Drive

From PTA’s Sara McDowell:

Hello to all of our Thrasher families. A few years ago Dana Stone incorporated an outreach position as a part of our PTA. The goal is simply to share our blessings with our greater area school community. We want to start this season of thanksgiving by collecting new or gently used coats for children that need our love. We at Thrasher want to give back and we need your help. There will be bins in the front lobby. You may send in coats with your child or simply drop them off. Collections for this drive will start this Monday, November 4th and run through Monday November 18th. Please consider helping with this outreach as we can keep many kids warm this winter. Thanks for your time and consideration. If you have any questions I can be reached at  Happy Fall, Sara McDowell 

All the best,
