WOODLAND — The Woodland Public Schools’ Family Community Resource Center (FCRC) would like to share a very grateful “thank you’’ to all those who participated in the 2019 Drive for Coats in partnership with Clark County Fire & Rescue.

On Nov. 16, Woodland community members donated 67 new winter coats and jackets for students of all ages. All who donated coats were given a ride on the CCFR fire truck, courtesy of area firefighters. For two weeks following the Drive for Coats’ Saturday kickoff, the Woodland community donated an additional 65 coats for a total of 132 by dropping them off at donation boxes located at Woodland’s Burgerville and Wal-Mart.
