CHS coat drive yields barrels of donations; students raise more than $550

For more than two decades, we have conducted a coat drive in partnership with the outstanding Coats For Kids initiative by Colvin Cleaners.

Our community filled several barrels with coats, hats and gloves in a drive organized by our students as part of the CHS Campus Ministry program. On Monday morning the donations were loaded by student leaders into a van driven by Colvin Cleaners Vice President Chris Billoni.
