A Huge Thank You from Benton Heights Elementary
Last month we reached out to our families to help support another school in need and as always our families went above and beyond! Remember we told you that Benton Heights Elementary had run out of coats to support their students in need? It has been rather cold recently and many students are without warm coats. Well lots of students brought in their gently used coats and we were able to pass them on to others.
Benton Heights received the coats we collected during our coat drive in January. They were so thankful and shared the students were super happy to get them, especially with the cold winter we have had so far.
We would like to thank Parker Mills and his staff at Mills Cleaners for cleaning all the coats and delivering them to Benton Heights. Mr. Mills did not hesitate to offer his services and even went above and beyond by delivering them for us. He is a true example of kindness and compassion!
