LMES students giving warmth to others
LEXINGTON, S.C. — Donation boxes reached capacity at Lake Murray Elementary, where students and their families are collecting coats for the ninth year. Led by Fifth-Grader Seth K. Hendley and his family, the “Give a Coat, Warm a Kid” drive is shaping up to be a success once again. Hendley and his family made a collection box, then sent fliers home with students, and the coats started pouring in quickly.
Community partner Lexington Interfaith Community Services will clean all of the donated coats and distribute them to people in need in the local Lexington area. Last year, students collected more than 210 coats, and LMES hopes to surpass that this year. LMES will accept coats until December 20.
