PLATTSBURGH - The Plattsburgh Teachers Association is once again partnering with the New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association to host a coat drive at Plattsburgh High School. The drive is accepting coats for distribution Tuesday, Dec. 7, and Wednesday, Dec. 8.
Last year, the two organizations provided hundreds of families with coats for the winter and was an event deemed an enormous success. This year, the goal is to reach out to the community for help.
Boxes have been made available at both entrances of PHS. Community members can donate their coats to others during school hours.
Winter coats, hoodies, boots, hats, scarves, mittens and other winter apparel will be accepted.
For more information, call the school at 561-7500.
