Logan Police partnering with Key Club to gather Coats for Christmas

Logan City Police have a new partner in their annual coat drive, “Coats for Christmas” as the Logan High School Key Club is spearheading the effort to collect new and “gently used” coats for school-aged children, adults and families in need of warm coats for the winter. “Key Club is a service club at Logan High,” said adviser David Bates. “We’re set up to work both locally and, this year, with an international division where we are working on projects in various parts of the world. “We have a series of projects that come to us regularly and we’re soliciting others right now. We have a huge group of kids this year, over 100 who are involved in the Key Club and they’re a pretty fantastic group.” Bates said the club was looking for something that would have an immediate impact in committing to “Coats for Christmas” and the club has set a goal of 1,000 coats. “We have learned there are 103 students in the Logan City schools, K-through-12, that are considered homeless. It was a huge surprise to us. These are people definitely in need of almost anything we can provide.” Donated coats can be dropped off at the Logan High School front lobby and at the Logan City Police Department lobby, 7 am to 5 pm, between now and December 15. After hours drop-offs can be coordinated through Sgt. Jeff Simmons at 716-9317. Bates said the drive is also set up to handle cash donations through the financial secretary at the Logan High office and through the police department. Superior Cleaners has again donated their cleaning services for all donated coats.
