Interact club participates in Coats for Kids

Although the event only lasted an hour, Coats for Kids was a memorable opportunity for the members of the Interact club to give back to the community. On Dec. 10, a group of Interact members met at the Palmer Event Center to sort coats. Hundreds of donated coats which had been cleaned were stored in cardboard boxes that were put out to be sorted on various racks. Even the coats that were not chosen to be given to children and adults on the distribution day were saved to give to various other charities and organizations. It was nice to know that every single coat, jacket and sweatshirt would be worn and cared for.

For president of Interact senior Carolyn Devers, this will be her last year to volunteer as part of Interact.

“I’ve done [Coats for Kids] since sophomore year, and it’s just great, because it’s a lot of people coming together for a greater cause,” Carolyn said. “This being my senior year, it’s just a great way to end it. It’s a great opportunity for people to come together and help other people. It makes me happy seeing all of these coats going to good children, children in need, and families that really need them.”
