Keeping kids warm — and in school.
November 16 – December 11, 2015
Be a CLE #CoatHero!
Student attendance is an important element for the learning process. We find when students do not have coats or other winter apparel during the winter months they may not attend school. United Way of Greater Cleveland will help combat this issue by leading a winter coat and apparel drive for CMSD investment schools from November 16th to December 11th.
Our goal is to secure new or gently used coats and other winter clothing (gloves, hats, etc.) for CMSD investment school students in grades K-8.
How can I help?
