It was chilly at the school bus stop this morning. If your kids pulled out their coats and found a few too-short sleeves, Mockingbird Early Childhood PTO volunteers hope you’ll donate to their coat drive effort.

The Mockingbird Elementary Peace Pantry is in need of new or gently used coats, hats and gloves. Neighbors can also purchase a Kroger gift card to help support food-insecure students and families during winter break.

Contact Lindsey Siglin for the dropoff location.
