“Local Warming” Hits Casper

CoatsForKids13The Natrona County School District and the Casper Kiwanis Club are encouraging citizens to participate in a phenomenon being dubbed “local warming.” It’s much like the theory of “global warming” where it’s the gradual warming of an area. The organizations are hoping to spread warmth this winter through the annual Coats for Kids Drive. You can get involved in this “local warming” effort by donating coats and other winter weather accessories for those who may need them.

From now until Nov. 14, you can drop off good, quality, clean coats at several locations around Casper. The coats will be cleaned by the laundry department at Wyoming Medical Center or dry-cleaned by One Hour Martinizing. They will then be distributed to those who need them at the Salvation Army Hope Center at 441 S. Center on Oct. 19 & 26, Nov. 2, 9, & 15 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Coats of all sizes will be accepted, from infant to adult. New hats, mittens and snowboots will also be accepted.

Drop off locations are: any NCSD school or office, any First Interstate Bank branch, Next Generation Learning Center (both locations), Western Vista Credit Union, American National Bank, WYHY Federal Credit Union, Platte Valley Bank, and H.E. Stuckenhoff Building at Casper College.

For more information, contact Shelly Carper at 307-259-6533.
