PTO Coat Drive and Book Drive
There is a chill in the air, so it's time for a coat drive. The PTO is organizing a coat drive to help those in need in our community find the perfect coat. If you would like to donate a gently used coat or jacket it can be dropped off at the Lower Elementary, the Upper Elementary, Middle School, and High School. We will have a box near the door to place the coats in for collection. If your child brings a coat in on their own, please attach a note to the item. Our kids are generous and will give the coat off their back to help a friend; and for that reason, we ask that you attach a note so that we know that you know what they are doing. The dry cleaners in Prattville is willing to help us get the coats clean and ready for distribution. We are working with the Ministerial Alliance to get the coat to those in need. If you or someone you know needs a coat, you can send a note to the office of your child's school and we will make sure it gets to the right person. Please include a size and gender along with your name. The coat drive will continue through the month of October. We are collecting coats from all the Mannford Public School sites so we will have a variety of sizes available.
The PTO is also collecting books for a literacy program. If you have books packed away that your child no longer reads and has outgrown, we will have a box for books too. Our book drive will be an ongoing thing throughout the year.
