News Release, Charles County Public Schools
Members of the General Smallwood Middle School eighth-grade Student Government Association held a winter coat drive over the past month to collect coats, hats, and gloves for men, women, and children.
The students partnered with St. Mary Church, Newport, which will now prepare them for distribution to school children, families and others in need. Students said they wrote letters, made morning announcements and advertised the coat drive in the school newsletter.
The group was able to donate nearly 30 coats, both brand new and gently used, as well as new hats and gloves.
