Bergholz Community Foundation holds Coats for Kids drive at John Gregg

The Bergholz Community Foundation held its annual Coats for Kids drive at John Gregg Elementary School with the foundation donating $3,000 to the school to give needy students vouchers to purchase warm winter coats, hats and gloves.

The foundation provides a voucher to a needy student along with any other sibling in their family. The foundation received assistance from Donna Swartz, school librarian, in organizing the project. On hand were Larry Crow, Debbie Mallernee and Amy Richards, all foundation trustees; Swartz; Mindy Carpenter, foundation trustee; and Dylan Barker, a second-grade pupil.
