The Perkiomen Valley School District is working with Cradles
to Crayons to serve as a drop-off point for coats for needy children as part of the district's Martin Luther King Day of Service activities.
Residents can drop off gently-used coats, sized newborn to 14/16, to Schwenksville Elementary, Perkiomen Valley Middle School East and the Perkiomen Valley School District Office on Iron Bridge Drive through Friday.
On Monday, the Trappe Fire Co. will serve as a collection point from 9 a.m. through 3 p.m.
“Your donation of new and like-new children’s coats will support Cradles to Crayons’ efforts to provide children living in homeless or low-income situations with the essentials they need to thrive,” according to the organization.
