Topeka, Kan. (KSNT) - Nearly 150 students in Topeka now have a coat to keep them warm this winter, thanks to a local agency.
"Let's Help" donated nearly 150 coats to kids at Scott Magnet Dual Language School.
Families could request a coat for their kids from the organization "Communities in Schools."
"Let's Help" was able to purchase the coats thanks to donations.
"Back in July during enrollment we had parents let us know whether they possibly needed a winter coat," says Jess Wothke. "Also last week at parent teacher conferences I had a table and families were able to request a coat as well."
Teachers could also request coats for their students.
