Walnut school collecting coats

Vejar Elementary School Brownie Troop #229 will be collecting gently used coats for a One Warm Coat drive from Dec. 15-19. 


The outer wear donations will be distributed to a home in Chino for neglected and abused children ages 5-18. 


The 15 troop members, in first, second and third grades, will be collecting donations of coats, sweaters, and jackets Monday – Thursday after school from 2:45 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. in the school’s courtyard at 20222 E. Vejar Road in Walnut.   On Friday, donations can be dropped off from 12:15 p.m. -12:30 p.m.


Last year, more than 2,000 One Warm Coat drives were held across the country to bring warmth to families in need.
