A Little Heart launches coat drive for local students
The Plains-based A Little Heart Charity wants to ensure all local children have winter coats.
“A Little Heart Charity was horrified to learn that some Fauquier area school children were arriving at school without the warmth and comfort provided by a winter coat,” said Amanda Rieman, a volunteer with the organization based in The Plains.
The group has launched a drive to collect new or “gently used” jackets and coats for those children.
Donations may be dropped at:
• New Baltimore Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department, 6550 Riley Road, Warrenton.
• The Marshall Volunteer Rescue Squad, 8472 West Main Street, Marshall.
• Starbucks 127 West Lee Highway, Warrenton.
“All collected items will be delivered to Fauquier area schools,” Ms. Rieman said. “School principals and counselors will distribute the items to those who are most in need.”
