OZARK, Ala. (WDHN) — As the season change, sweaters and coats will become more essential.

To help gain these essentials, Ozark City Schools is collecting these items to help less fortunate students who need coats or sweaters during the winter. Their ten-year partnership with Logan’s Cleaners is how the drive got started.

Collection boxes are placed around Ozark schools and businesses. The deadline to donate a coat is October 22, however, you can take it to Logan’s Cleaners anytime.

Ozark City Schools collects coats all year long to store for their students.
