Dripping Springs High School is hosting a coat donation competition to benefit kids in need. The annual Coats for Kids drive is taking place from November 16th to December 4th.

“The students will collect coats for the duration of the drive,” said Counselor’s Assistant Kim Van Every. “Then we will take them to Jack Brown Cleaners where they will be cleaned up.”

From there, all donations will be taken to the Palmer Events Center on December 12th.

“The coats will be distributed from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.,” Van Every said. “To receive a coat the recipient must be 18 years or younger, accompanied by an adult, and come with proof of enrollment in a government assistant program or proof of living at or below 200% of the national poverty level.”

The third period class that donates the most coats will be treated to a homemade breakfast by the counselors.

“The breakfast will consist of homemade cinnamon rolls, breakfast casserole, orange juice, fruit, and possibly donuts,” she said. “The homemade cinnamon rolls and the breakfast casserole are the best!”
