The CMS Coats for Kids Club needs your help! Their annual Anton’s Cleaners Coats for Kids drive is underway! Our goal this year is to collect 500 coats!! Please consider donating any gently-used coats for the needy this winter. The drop off box is by the office at both Peabody and Sanborn. We accept any size coat, from infant snowsuits to over-sized adult, but please do not donate clothing other than winter coats – no scarves, hats, gloves, mittens or snow pants. The Drive runs until January 8th, 2018. If you receive a new coat for the winter consider donating your old coat to Coats for Kids.  Who will collect the most coats, Peabody or Sanborn?!! Thank you very much for your generosity!
